In geometry, the truncated order-4 heptagonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of t{7,4}.

## Constructions

There are two uniform constructions of this tiling, first by the [7,4] kaleidoscope, and second by removing the last mirror, [7,4,1+], gives [7,7], (*772).

## Symmetry

There is only one simple subgroup [7,7]+, index 2, removing all the mirrors. This symmetry can be doubled to 742 symmetry by adding a bisecting mirror.
