So you're saying:

   :g --???--> X --denotes--> graph

and there should be some way of stating what relation --???--> is for a particular dataset.

Wouldn't it make more sense to say:

   :g --denotes--> X --???--> graph

because :g is an IRI and as such probably is supposed to denote something already. Then some obvious choices for --???--> would be sameAs, hasRepresentation, and hasPrimaryTopic.

Best,
