By a polytope I mean the convex hull of finitely many points. The graph of a polytope is the graph isomorphic to its 1-skeleton. By equivalence of polytopes I mean combinatorial equivalence, i.e. their face lattices are isomorphic.

I know that two polytopes can have isomorphic graphs while being non-equivalent, e.g. neighborly polytopes. However, all examples I know of are polytopes of different dimension. So I wonder:

Question: Can there be two non-equivalent poyltopes of the same dimension with the same graph?

Especially, are all $k$-neighborly polytopes of the same dimension equivalent?

The 1-skeleton is usually not enough to recover the face lattice, but under some conditions it is. I did a quick google search, and read the abstract in this paper.
