A cephoid is a Minkowski sum of finitely many prisms in Rⁿ. We discuss the concept of duality for cephoids. Also, we show that the reference number uniquely defines a face. Based on these results, we exhibit two graphs on the outer surface of a cephoid. The first one corresponds to a maximal face and its reference system. The second graph describes the generalized tentacles.
