The captions in this area represent the reigns of various kings and anti-kings under the emperor Friedrich II. The date spans provided after each name are the years of that person's reign, not his birth and death years. If the newly proposed caption is intended for the period of Siegfried's reign as chancellor, the dates of that reign should be provided rather than his birth and death dates. It may be more appropriate to class the item that generated the proposal in the biography number, DD158.A-Z. The proposal may be resubmitted if necessary.
The proposal to cancel "e.g." under this caption was not approved. The presence of "e.g." allows most cities and towns to be shelflisted without being explicitly included in the schedule. It does not prohibit adding a specific caption to the list if there are special circumstances that make it desirable to include it.
Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:
H 1156, Literatures
$x Northern Thai influences
$x Thai influences
Since the heading Music--Arab influences is already established, this proposal is not necessary (see the Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, H 1675, sec. 2.b.)
