German term or phrase:Meißelarbeit
The context is the 3rd-c. AD workshops at Chemtou, where they are making marble bowls and statuettes, and one of the stages of working represented by production debris is “Grobe und feine Meisselarbeit” – it must mean something like “Coarse and fine shaping/roughing-out/forming” ?
