Book 10


εἰσάγεται δὲ Ἡρακλῆς καὶ Λεπρεῖ περὶ πολυφαγίας ἐρίζων ἐκείνου προκαλεσαμένου, καὶ νενίκηκεν. Ζηνόδοτος δʼ ἐν δευτέρῳ Ἐπιτομῶν Καύκωνός φησι τοῦ Ποσειδῶνος καὶ Ἀστυδαμείας τῆς Φόρβαντος γενέσθαι τὸν Λεπρέα, ὃν τὸν Ἡρακλέα κελεῦσαι δεθῆναι, ὅτε Αὐγέαν τὸν μισθὸν ἀπῄτει. Ἡρακλῆς δʼ ἐκτελέσας τοὺς ἄθλους ἔρχεται ἐπὶ Καύκωνας καὶ δεηθείσης Ἀστυδαμείας διαλύεται πρὸς τὸν Λεπρέα. καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα Λεπρεὺς Ἡρακλεῖ ἐρίζει δίσκῳ καὶ ὕδατος ἀντλήσει καὶ ὅστις ἀναλώσει θᾶττον ταῦρον, καὶ λείπεται πάντα. εἶτα θωρηχθεὶς προκαλεῖται Ἡρακλέα καὶ θνῄσκει ἐν τῇ μάχῃ. Μᾶτρις δʼ ἐν τῷ τοῦ Ἡρακλέους ἐγκωμίῳ καὶ εἰς πολυποσίαν φησὶ τὸν Ἡρακλέα προκληθῆναι ὑπὸ τοῦ Λεπρέως, καὶ πάλιν νικηθῆναι. τὰ αὐτὰ ἱστορεῖ καὶ Χῖος ῥήτωρ Καύκαλος, Θεοπόμπου τοῦ ἱστοριογράφου ἀδελφός, ἐν τῷ τοῦ Ἡρακλέους ἐγκωμίῳ.

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.
