Perchè taccia il rumor di mia catena
Di lagrime, di speme, e di amor vivo,
E di silenzio; chè pietà mi affrena

Agli antipodi!--A tutti la nojosa
Catena della vita; a tutti, grami
E possenti, la uggiosa vicenda
Del cibo e delle vesti!
"Alba" by Ferdinando Fontana

The common end of tees belonging to a catena is the initial vertex of it (e1 for catena (110).
Assembling Lie Algebras from Lieons
The other end vertex of it is its final vertex (em+1 for catena (110).

But any tee, which is incompatible with ϑ and at the same time is compatible with the catena ≀ ⊂ Φ, is of the form ⌊A, D |Q⌉.
Assembling Lie Algebras from Lieons
E, D |C ⌉ ∈ ≀2 is a c-tee and, conversely, any c-tee is contained in a 2-catena ≀2 ⊂ Φ. (2) If C is a vertex of a tee ̺ which is nontrivial ly compatible with ≀2, then ̺ is of one of the fol lowing types: ⌊E, A|C ⌉ (type I at E ), or ⌊D, C |Q⌉ (type II at E ), or ⌊E, C |B ′ ⌉ (type III at E ).

Moreover, θ and ̺ form an open 2-catena ≀2 whose initial vertex is E .
