Glome is the term sometimes used by mathematicians to describe the four-dimensional object analogous to the three-dimensional sphere or the two-dimensional circle. This definition is specific to four dimensions, no more and no less.

The term comes from the Latin 'glomus', which means 'ball of string'.

See also hypersphere.
