In this paper we study a class of algebras having n-dimensional pyramid shaped quiver with n-cubic cells, which we called n-cubic pyramid algebras. This class of algebras includes the quadratic dual of the basic n-Auslander absolutely n-complete algebras introduced by Iyama. We show that the projective resolutions of the simples of n-cubic pyramid algebras can be characterized by n-cuboids, and prove that they are periodic. So these algebras are almost Koszul and (n−1)-translation algebras. We also recover Iyama’s cone construction for n-Auslander absolutely n-complete algebras using n-cubic pyramid algebras and the theory of n-translation algebras.
