In this paper we introduce a method of presenting 3-manifolds by polyhedral schemata with 2 vertices so that they may be naturally associated with given crystallizations of 3-manifolds. As applications, we explicitly present crystallizations of n-fold cyclic branched coverings of S over 2-bridge knots.
