Paragraph
53

φοινικίνου δὲ οἴνου μέμνηται καὶ Ἔφιππος· κάρυα, ῥοίας, φοίνικας, ἕτερα νώγαλα, σταμνάριά τʼ οἴνου μικρὰ τοῦ φοινικίνου. καὶ πάλιν· φοινικίνου βῖκός τις ὑπανεῴγνυτο. μνημονεύει αὐτοῦ καὶ Ξενοφῶν Ἀναβάσει Μενδαίου δὲ Κρατῖνος· νῦν δʼ ἂν ἴδῃ Μενδαῖον ἡβῶντʼ ἀρτίως οἰνίσκον, ἕπεται κἀκολουθεῖ καὶ λέγει· οἴμʼ ὡς ἁπαλὸς καὶ λευκός· ἆρʼ οἴσει τρία; Ἕρμιππος δέ που ποιεῖ τὸν Διόνυσον πλειόνων μεμνημένον· Μενδαίῳ ... μὲν καὶ ἐνουροῦσιν θεοὶ αὐτοὶ στρώμασιν ἐν μαλακοῖς. Μάγνητα δὲ μειλιχόδωρον καὶ Θάσιον, τῷ δὴ μήλων ἐπιδέδρομεν ὀδμή, τοῦτον ἐγὼ κρίνω πολὺ πάντων εἶναι ἄριστον τῶν ἄλλων οἴνων μετʼ ἀμύμονα Χῖον ἄλυπον. ἔστι δέ τις οἶνος, τὸν δὴ σαπρίαν καλέουσι, οὗ καὶ ἀπὸ στόματος στάμνων ὑπανοιγομενάων ὄζει ἴων, ὄζει δὲ ῥόδων, ὄζει δʼ ὑακίνθου· ὀσμὴ θεσπεσία κατὰ πᾶν δʼ ἔχει ὑψερεφὲς δῶ, ἀμβροσία καὶ νέκταρ ὁμοῦ. τοῦτʼ ἐστὶ τὸ νέκταρ, τούτου χρὴ παρέχειν πίνειν ἐν δαιτὶ θαλείῃ τοῖσιν ἐμοῖσι φίλοις, τοῖς δʼ ἐχθροῖς ἐκ Πεπαρήθου· φησὶ δὲ Φαινίας Ἐρέσιος Μενδαίους τοὺς βότρυς ἐπὶ τῇ ἀμπέλῳ ῥαίνειν τῷ ἐλατηρίῳ· διὸ γίνεσθαι τὸν οἶνον μαλακόν.

CTS URN Retriever

The CTS URN retriever is a tool for retrieving and citing paragraphs, passages, and words in the text of the Deipnosophists by typing the corresponding CTS URN. The Digital Athenaeus is providing the text of the Teubner edition of the Deipnosophists by Georg Kaibel (1887-1890), which is cataloged as perseus-grc2 in the Perseus Catalog.

The syntax of the URNs follows the specification of the CITE Architecture.

For example:

The tool allows also users to type only book and paragraph of the Deipnosophists and get the corresponding CTS URN.

For example:

Correspondences between Casaubon and Kaibel references are available through the Casaubon-Kaibel Reference Converter.

The icons on the left of each paragraph are links to external resources:

Using CTS URNs, it is possible to export citations of the Deipnosophists down to the word level. By selecting a portion of text holding down the ALT-key, users get a pop-up window with the CTS URN that identifies the selected chunk of text.
