Examples

  • VIa: VI¹a, not symmetrical in VII: VII¹, and the weapons are not symmetrical, except in VII: VII¹ (_i. e._, thyrsus, club, torch: club, no weapon, club).

    The American Journal of Archaeology, 1893-1

  • But a closer examination shows that this lack of symmetry is apparent only when figures VII: VII¹ are considered individually, and apart from the scenes to which they belong.

    The American Journal of Archaeology, 1893-1

  • VII, the outside figures of the main scene on the left, appropriately face each other, the figures IV¹ and VII¹, which occupy the same position with regard to the chief scene on the right, are placed so as to face in opposite directions.

    The American Journal of Archaeology, 1893-1

  • VIa Vb IV IV¹ V¹b VI¹b and by their correspondence to VII: VII¹.

    The American Journal of Archaeology, 1893-1

    Balkinization

  • Several recent charitable-choice statutes expressly reaffirm the applicability of the title VII exemption, even for recipients of direct government aid, and other charitable-choice laws can be construed not to affect the title VII background rule.

    Law In The Health and Human Services

  • By the early 1970s, courts began to extend the Title VII sex discrimination provisions to cover instances of sexual harassment.5 These cases involved what has been termed quid pro quo literally, “this for that” harassment, where the demand for sexual favors was linked to employment decisions such as promotions and compensation.
