A Polyhedron which is topologically equivalent to a Torus and for which every pair of faces has an Edge in common. This polyhedron was discovered by L. Szilassi in 1977. Its Skeleton is equivalent to the seven-color torus map illustrated below.

The Szilassi polyhedron has 14 Vertices, seven faces, and 21 Edges, and is the Dual Polyhedron of the Császár Polyhedron.
