    We introduce a new class of non-birefringent, linear media. These media are based on skewonic materials (media that violate the Post constraint), complemented by a skew-symmetric contribution to the principal part of the constitutive relation. The class may be parametrized in terms of a 4 × 4 matrix, whose symmetric part defines the quadratic Fresnel surface, and two space vectors.
