* The case n=2 equally would be considerable here by concept, it just has a different incidence matrix as the ngons become degenerate.
The compound of 2 mutually gyrated ngonal antiprisms, one considered as xonox&#x, the other as oxnxo&#x, has for encasing convex hull a variant of the 2ngonal prism, in fact the variant a2no b, where a = 1/[2 cos(π/2n)] and b = sqrt[1  1/[2 cos(π/2n)]^{2}] = sqrt[(1+2 cos(π/n))/(2+2 cos(π/n))]. This is how the below mentioned semiation as a vertex alternation (snubbing) truely works (when resizing would be considered first).
