his symmetric property associates an instance of E53 Place with another instance of E53 Place geometrically overlapping it.
It does not specify anything about the shared area. This property is purely spatial. It does not imply that phenomena that define,by their extent, places related by P121 overlaps withhave ever covered a common area at the same time or even coexisted. In contrast, spatiotemporal overlaps described by P132 spatiotemporally overlapsare the total of areas simultaneously covered by therelated spacetime volumes.
This property is symmetric
the territory of the United States (E53) overlaps with the Arctic (E53) (Gannett, 1904)
the maximal extent of the Kingdom of Greece (1832-1973) (E53) overlaps withthe maximal extent of the Republic of Turkey (29 October 1923 to now) (E53)
