The E6 polytope is a semiregular polytope, discovered by Thorold Gosset, published in his 1900 paper. He called it an 6ic semiregular figure
Its construction is based on the E6 group. It is also named by Coxeter as 221 by its bifurcating CoxeterDynkin diagram, with a single ring on the end of one of the 2node sequence.
It is also one of a family of 39 convex uniform polytopes in 6dimensions, made of uniform polytope facets and vertex figures, defined by all permutations of ringed CoxeterDynkin diagrams.
