On sculptors in ancient Rome: "no more than a workman, doing hard physical labor,...obscure, earning a small wage, a man of low esteem, classed as worthless by public opinion, neither courted by friends, feared by enemies, nor envied by fellow citizens." On the other hand, the top astrologers in Rome had both celebrity and political power.

— Lucian
