Disagree. Entity subsumes Object and Concept. See [1].    (02)

Concepts are abstract entities in the referenced paper. Objects are
concrete. Concept and Object are complements: their extents are
disjoint.    (03)

Returning to the subject of earlier threads, Abstract Objects have no
extent: they do not exist.    (04)
