In geometry, an *n*-sided **antiprism** is a polyhedron composed of two parallel copies of some particular *n*-sided polygon, connected by an alternating band of triangles. Antiprisms are a subclass of the prismatoids.

Antiprisms are similar to prisms except the bases are twisted relative to each other, and that the side faces are triangles, rather than quadrilaterals.

In the case of a regular *n*-sided base, one usually considers the case where its copy is twisted by an angle 180°/*n*. Extra regularity is obtained by the line connecting the base centers being perpendicular to the base planes, making it a **right antiprism**. As faces, it has the two *n*-gonal bases and, connecting those bases, 2*n* isosceles triangles.
