It can also be called an enneazetton, or ennea-8-tope, as a 9-facetted polytope in eight-dimensions. The nameenneazetton is derived from ennea for nine facets in Greek and -zetta for having seven-dimensional facets, and -on.
This configuration matrix represents the 8-simplex. The rows and columns correspond to vertices, edges, faces, cells, 4-faces, 5-faces, 6-faces and 7-faces. The diagonal numbers say how many of each element occur in the whole 8-simplex. The nondiagonal numbers say how many of the column's element occur in or at the row's element. This self-dual simplex's matrix is identical to its 180 degree rotation.^{[1]}^{[2]}
More simply, the vertices of the 8-simplex can be positioned in 9-space as permutations of (0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1). This construction is based on facets of the 9-orthoplex.
