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.
The elements of the regular polytopes can be expressed in a configuration matrix. Rows and columns reference vertices, edges, faces, and cells, etc, with diagonal element their counts (f-vectors). The nondiagonal elements represent the number of row elements are incident to the column element. The configurations for dual polytopes can be seen by rotating the matrix elements by 180 degrees.^{[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.
