COMMENTS
A tesseract is a regular 4-dimensional orthotope or hypercube with 16 vertices and 32 edges. Its Schläfli symbol is {4,3,3}. An achiral coloring is identical to its reflection. Also the number of achiral colorings of the triangular faces of a regular 4-dimensional orthoplex {3,3,4} with n available colors.
There are 192 elements in the automorphism group of the tesseract 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) = (2*n^6 + 8*n^8 + n^16 + n^20) / 12.
a(n) = C(n,1) + 93022*C(n,2) + 293878020*C(n,3) + 90807857080*C(n,4) + 7503022894800*C(n,5) + 258528829444320*C(n,6) + 4681671089961600*C(n,7) + 50981530073846400*C(n,8) + 363246007692204000*C(n,9) + 1789536284820648000*C(n,10) + 6323058513173001600*C(n,11) + 16406578807069651200*C(n,12) + 31689737477798400000*C(n,13) + 45786987328642560000*C(n,14) + 49291621471572480000*C(n,15) + 38970361271761920000*C(n,16) + 21972146261345280000*C(n,17) + 8363100653107200000*C(n,18) + 1926047423139840000*C(n,19) + 202741834014720000*C(n,20), where the coefficient of C(n,k) is the number of colorings using exactly k colors.
a(n) = 2*A331359(n) - A331358(n) = A331358(n) - 2*A331360(n) = A331359(n) - A331360(n).
