According to my notes, a "beb" is equivalent to an exterior top. So a box has a beb. Or are my notes wrong? According to my notes, a "beb" is a roof.

A {yor} is the general term for the exterior top of something, I believe a box or table is more likely to have one of those. {beb} is a roof of a house but has also recently been extended to refer to the surface of a body of water if preceded by {bIQ}.
