From Greek architecture, the space between the triglyphs in the frieze of the Doric order. Metopes were often filled with ceramic faces and figures; in commercial buildings these would advertise the commerce of the building. In Roman architecture these are all exactly square, but the Greeks often made them rectilinear.
