RHOMB. n.s. [rhombe, Fr. rhombus, Lat. ρομβΘ.] In geo-
metry, a parallelograpm or quadrangular figure, having its four
sides equal, and consisting of parallel lines, with two opposing

Save the sun his labour, and that swift
Nocturnal and diurnal rhomb suppos’d
Invisible else above all stars, the wheel
of day and night. Milton.
