Artemidoros: A whetstone is the symbol of encouragement and confidence and says as it were, one must become more sharp. In friendship relations he means not that which take one under the arms, but those who cheer up and stimulate. He does not work because together with iron, however, he makes it more sharp. Often the whetstone also calls a woman. Popular: (arab).: race: you are worried and unsafe, whetstone: Luck in the love. (European ones).: one must be anxious of his advantage, - signalled that big care is required in the matters if one liked to avoid difficulties - one could be urged to a disagreeable trip. (ind).: big joy.
