The Sixth Plato's (Hyper)Polyhedron
It's the 24-cell, the hyperdiamond. I love this hyperpolyhedron. I think it's the VI Plato's Polyhedron because it has not a corresponding regular solid in 3D. It's self-dual: the barycentres of its 24 octahedra are the vertices of an other hyperdiamond. I don't like the graphos that you can find on-line, so I did re-draw it as below:
Now you can easily count the 24 vertices, the 96 edges, the 96 faces and the 24 octahedra.
Below there is a study of an axonometry:
It isn't trivial!
