[266a]

Stranger
You divided all productive art widthwise, as it were, before; now divide it lengthwise.

Theaetetus
Assume that it is done.

Stranger
In that way we now get four parts in all; two belong to us and are human, and two belong to the gods and are divine.

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
And again, when the section is made the other way, one part of each half has to do with the making of real things, and the two remaining parts may very well be called image-making; and so productive art is again divided into two parts.
