sequence

From the Lua 5.2 reference manual §2.1:

We use the term sequence to denote a table where the set of all positive numeric keys is equal to {1..n} for some integer n, which is called the length of the sequence (see §3.4.6).

sequence = { 'foo', 'bar', 'baz', 'qux', --[[ ... ]] }
 
-- or
 
sequence = {
    [1] = 'foo',
    [2] = 'bar',
    [3] = 'baz',
    [4] = 'qux',
    -- [n] = ...,
}
