In geometry, the augmented truncated cube is one of the Johnson solids (J66). As its name suggests, it is created by attaching a square cupola (J4) onto one octagonal face of a truncated cube.

A Johnson solid is one of 92 strictly convex polyhedra that have regular faces but are not uniform (that is, they are not Platonic solids, Archimedean solids, prisms, or antiprisms). They were named by Norman Johnson, who first listed these polyhedra in 1966.[1]
