    I found this: Platonic solids are three-dimensional shapes that have equal sides, angles, and faces. There are five Platonic solids. The tetrahedron is a four-sided polyhedron with four equilateral triangles for faces. It looks like a three-sided pyramid (where the fourth side is the base). The cube is a six-sided polyhedron with six squares for faces. The octahedron is an eight-sided polyhedron with eight equilateral triangles for faces. It looks like two four-sided pyramids attached at their bases. The dodecahedron is a 12-sided polyhedron with twelve equilateral pentagons for faces. The icosahedron is a 20-sided polyhedron with twenty equilateral triangles for faces.

    I suppose you can call it a bipyramid - which qualifies as a pyramid?
