stop

Here is my best explanation:

'finish' is the definition.
('stop' can be a synonym of 'finish')

'work on stone' is the subsidiary indication.
'work' becomes 'op' (common abbreviation for 'opus').
'on' says to put letters next to each other.
'stone' becomes 'st'.
'op' put after 'st' is 'stop'.
