(Click on image for high-quality PDF version)
The derivation is from Tiling based upon a Roman Mosaic by changing the angles!
Geometry
- The symmetry group of the tiling is *442 (p4m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 9°.
- Contains one regular two-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 63°.
- Contains one regular four-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 63°.
- Contains one regular 8-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 18°.
- The tiling satisfies the two-colour condition.
- The tiling is edge-to-edge.
- As drawn, contains about 52 polygons.
