Book 10


τὸ γὰρ παροινεῖν ἐκ τοῦ μεθύειν γίνεται· διὸ καὶ Ἀντιφάνης ἐν Ἀρκαδίᾳ φησίν οὔτε γὰρ νήφοντα δεῖ οὐδαμοῦ, πάτερ, παροινεῖν, οὔθʼ ὅταν πίνειν δέῃ νοῦν ἔχειν. ὅστις δὲ μεῖζον κατʼ ἄνθρωπον φρονεῖ, μικρῷ πεποιθὼς ἀθλίῳ νομίσματι εἰς ἄφοδον ἐλθὼν ὅμοιον πᾶσιν αὑτὸν ὄψεται ... ἂν σκοπῇ τὰ τῶν ἰατρῶν τοῦ βίου τεκμήρια τὰς φλέβας θʼ ὅποι φέρονται, τὰς ἄνω καὶ τὰς κάτω τεταμένας, διʼ ὧν θνητὸς πᾶς κυβερνᾶται βίος. ἐν δὲ Αἰόλῳ διαβάλλων ὅσα δεινὰ πράττουσιν οἱ πλέον πίνοντές φησι· Μακαρεὺς ἔρωτι τῶν ὁμοσπόρων μιᾶς πληγεὶς τέως μὲν ἐπεκράτει τῆς συμφορᾶς κατεῖχέ θʼ αὑτόν· εἶτα παραλαβών ποτε οἶνον στρατηγόν, ὃς μόνος θνητῶν ἄγει τὴν τόλμαν εἰς τὸ πρόσθε τῆς εὐβουλίας, νύκτωρ ἀναστὰς ἔτυχεν ὧν ἠβούλετο. καλῶς οὖν ἄρα καὶ Ἀριστοφάνης Ἀφροδίτης γάλα τὸν οἶνον ἔφη εἰπών· ἡδύς γε πίνειν οἶνος Ἀφροδίτης γάλα, ὃν πολὺν σπῶντες ἔνιοι παρανόμων ἀφροδισίων ὄρεξιν λαμβάνουσιν.

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.
