- friezes (ornamental bands) - Use for extended horizontal bands decorating architecture, furniture, or other objects and containing figures, scenes, or ornamental motifs. For the specific parts of classical entablatures, use "friezes (entablature components)." [April 1993 related term added.]
- soldiers - Use generally for those belonging to an army, whether that of a sovereign state, a faction or division within a sovereign state, or of an individual leader. Use also specifically for military personnel of enlisted rank, as distinguished from commissioned officers. For those trained for or engaged in the physical combat of warfare and sanctioned in that function by the society or group for which they fight, irrespective of actual membership in an army, use "warriors." [November 1997 scope note changed; related term added. November 1996 related term deleted, was "knights (landholders)". February 1993 scope note changed; descriptor moved.
