In geometry, the augmented hexagonal prism is one of the Johnson solids (J54). As the name suggests, it can be constructed by augmenting a hexagonal prism by attaching a square pyramid (J1) to one of its equatorial faces.

A Johnson solid is one of 92 strictly convex regular-faced polyhedra, but which is not uniform, i.e., not a Platonic solid, Archimedean solid, prism or antiprism. They are named by Norman Johnson who first enumerated the set in 1966.
