Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax.

description Text A description of the item.

mainEntityOfPage CreativeWork  or

Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See background notes for details.
