These are ornamental architectural elements, used to decorate cornices and linear surfaces. In the classical entablature, that is the horizontal structure of the temples, supported by columns, the term frieze indicated the intermediate part, placed between the architrave and the cornice. In the Doric order, the frieze consisted of a succession of metopes and triglyphs. In the Ionic, Corinthian, in Roman and Renaissance art, this important architectural element is transformed into a continuous band decorated in relief. The metope and the triglyph are decorated quadrangular elements. The first type has three vertical grooves while the second is carved with illustrated scenes.
