Triglyphus

τρίγλυφος, “three-channelled”). A name given in the Doric frieze to surfaces which, projecting over every column and between every two columns, are ornamented with three parallel channels, two complete ones in the middle and two halves at the corners. Between the triglyphs are the metopes. See Architectura; Parthenon.
