In poetry:
But now when I sit in the twilight,
Or when I walk by the sea
That friendship, quite Platonic,
Comes surging over me.
"Platonic" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
And do I sigh or smile to-day?
Dead love or dead ambition, say,
Which mourn we most? Not much we weigh
Platonic friends.
"To E." by Amy Levy
Marooned no more, we sail the sea,
Ere sad gods were, we knew:
And from Platonic prows decree-
"The gods are Me, are You!"

There, too, by yonder moon we swore
Platonic friendship o'er and o'er;
No folk, we deemed, had been before
So wise and free.

There, Shelley dream'd his white Platonic dreams;
There, classic Landor throve on Roman thought;
There, Addison pursued his quiet themes;
There, smiled Erasmus, and there, Colet taught.
"Oxford" by Lionel Pigot Johnson
The fires that chill your life, torment the mind,
Even the enrapt vision gone,
The Platonic fury it has fed upon
Hears love's sigh on every wind,
Looks in an endless urn that now discloses
Embers of joy, ashes of roses.

In science:
We note that, if S is the set of vertices of a Platonic solid, then H is isotropic.

The basic sets of isotropic points are thus the sets of vertices of the Platonic solids.

Another case of great interest is quasi-platonic surfaces, namely πA : S → S/A = P1 is branched over three points.
Cyclic $n$-gonal Surfaces
The constraints due to S being a quasi-platonic surface are not well known at this time other than to mention that the signature of A is quite restricted, and the potential for application to dessins.
Cyclic $n$-gonal Surfaces
We begin with the following theorem that excludes all but the full Platonic symmetry groups as candidates for the symmetry groups of regular polyhedra of index 2.
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
Finally, we refer to for a proof that the rotation subgroups of the Platonic symmetry groups can also not occur as symmetry groups of regular polyhedra P of index 2.
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
Let S be a Platonic solid of type {r, s}, let {v, e, f } be a ﬂag of S, and let T be the triangle whose vertices are v, the center of e, and the center of f .
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
The vertices of a regular polyhedron P of index 2 are located at the vertices of a single Platonic solid, a pair of aligned or opposed Platonic solids, a cuboctahedron, or an icosidodecahedron, in each case sharing the same symmetry group.
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
We suppose, as before, that P is a regular polyhedron of index 2 with vertices coincident with the vertices of a single Platonic solid, a pair of aligned or opposed Platonic solids, a cuboctahedron, or an icosidodecahedron.
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
We noted earlier that if the vertices of P are those of a centrally symmetric Platonic solid then no edge of P can join two opposite vertices, for if so then that edge would subtend at least three faces under the rotational symmetries of the Platonic solid.
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
Since then S is a Platonic 1 )2 ∈ G+ (P ) = G+ (S ), so modulo G+ (P ) it suﬃces solid and G(P ) = G(S ), we have (σF to describe a face shape by [a, b].
Regular Polyhedra of Index Two, I
Then, by Lemma 4.4 and the analysis preceding it, the vertices of P are located at those of a pair of similar, aligned or opposed, Platonic solids, S and S (cid:5), sharing with P the same symmetry group and in particular the same center, o, and axes of rotation.
