Abstract: There is a regular $ 4$-dimensional polyhedron with 120 dodecahedra as $ 3$-dimensional faces. (Coxeter calls it the "$ 120$-cell".) The group of symmetries of this polyhedron is the Coxeter group with diagram:

$\displaystyle [unk]$

For each pair of opposite $ 3$-dimensional faces of this polyhedron there is a unique reflection in its symmetry group which interchanges them. The result of identifying opposite faces by these reflections is a hyperbolic manifold $ {M^4}$.
