COMMENTS
A regular 4-dimensional orthoplex (also hyperoctahedron or cross polytope) has 8 vertices and 24 edges. Its Schläfli symbol is {3,3,4}. An achiral coloring is identical to its reflection. Also the number of achiral colorings of the square faces of a tesseract {4,3,3} with n available colors.
There are 192 elements in the automorphism group of the 4-dimensional orthoplex that are not in its rotation group. Each is associated with a partition of 4 based on the conjugacy group of the permutation of the axes. The first formula is obtained by averaging their cycle indices after replacing x_i^j with n^j according to the Pólya enumeration theorem.

FORMULA
a(n) = (8*n^4 + 8*n^6 + 18*n^7 + 6*n^8 + n^12 + 3*n^13 + 3*n^15 + n^18) / 48.
a(n) = C(n,1) + 8198*C(n,2) + 9055962*C(n,3) + 1467050480*C(n,4) + 74035775370*C(n,5) + 1679679306420*C(n,6) + 20864180531565*C(n,7) + 159341117375160*C(n,8) + 804216787965360*C(n,9) + 2808560520334800*C(n,10) + 6981656802951600*C(n,11) + 12540346820971200*C(n,12) + 16328843044113600*C(n,13) + 15272715797539200*C(n,14) + 10003790644848000*C(n,15) + 4357170994176000*C(n,16) + 1133753677056000*C(n,17) + 133382785536000*C(n,18), where the coefficient of C(n,k) is the number of colorings using exactly k colors.
a(n) = 2*A331355(n) - A331354(n) = A331354(n) - 2*A331356(n) = A331355(n) - A331356(n).
