In The Sky

Other than cubes, which have six faces, there are only four other Platonic solids: The tetrahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron, which have 4, 8, 12, and 20 identical faces, respectively. They are called Platonic solids because they were discovered in ancient Greece and were subjects of wonder and veneration.
