[Stone-working] and stone-polishing are different. Stone-working [is the task] which those who work in the mines perform: cutting the stones. But stone-polishing is what is done by those who grind down and beautify the stones so that each of their works takes on a good appearance. Lysias in the [speech] In reply to Nausias, concerning the carving [writes]: "[...] but because there are three skills in the work, stone-working and stone-polishing and, in addition, creating the luxury".[1]
