English[edit]
Noun[edit]
 (geometry) A fourdimensional polytope, analogous to a dodecahedron, whose one hundred and twenty bounding facets are dodecahedra.
 1964, Canadian Mathematical Bulletin, page 394,
 The triacontagonal projection of the 120cell was first drawn by W. A. Wythoff, but not in reproducible form.
 1987, Jeffrey Hurst Butler, Hyperplane sections of regular star polytopes^{[1]}, page 28:
 In dimension four there are ten star polytopes which together with the 120cell and 600cell form the family of pentagonal polytopes (those regular 4polytopes possessing axes of fivefold symmetry); all twelve have the same symmetry group.

 In 1985, M. Davis [3] gave the first explicit geometric construction of a closed hyperbolic 4manifold by gluing together the opposite sides of a regular hyperbolic 120cell P with dihedral angle 72°.
