Νεοπτόλεμος δὲ Παριανὸς ἐν τῷ περὶ ἐπιγραμμάτων ἐν Χαλκηδόνι φησὶν ἐπὶ τοῦ Θρασυμάχου τοῦ σοφιστοῦ μνήματος ἐπιγεγράφθαι τόδε τὸ ἐπίγραμμα· τοὔνομα θῆτα ῥῶ ἄλφα σὰν μῦ ἄλφα χεῖ οὖ σάν, πατρὶς Χαλκηδών· δὲ τέχνη σοφίη. τὸ δὲ Καστορίωνος τοῦ Σολέως, ὡς Κλέαρχός φησιν, εἰς τὸν Πᾶνα ποίημα τοιοῦτόν ἐστι· τῶν ποδῶν ἕκαστος ὅλοις ὀνόμασιν περιειλημμένος πάντας ὁμοίως ἡγεμονικοὺς καὶ ἀκολουθητικοὺς ἔχει τοὺς πόδας, οἷον· σὲ τὸν βολαῖς νιφοκτύποις δυσχείμερον ναίονθʼ ἕδραν, θηρονόμε Πάν, χθόνʼ Ἀρκάδων κλήσω γραφῆι τῆιδʼ ἐν σοφῆι πάγκλειτʼ ἔπη συνθείς, ἄναξ, δύσγνωστα μὴ σοφῶι κλύειν, μουσοπόλε θήρ, κηρόχυτον ὃς μείλιγμʼ ἱεῖς, καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τὸν αὐτὸν τρόπον. τούτων δὲ ἕκαστον τῶν ποδῶν, ὡς ἂν τῇ τάξει θῇς, τὸ αὐτὸ μέτρον ἀποδώσει, οὕτως· σὲ τὸν βολαῖς νιφοκτύποις δυσχείμερον, νιφοκτύποις σὲ τὸν βολαῖς δυσχείμερον. καὶ ὅτι τῶν ποδῶν ἕκαστός ἐστι ἑνδεκαγράμματος. ἔστι καὶ μὴ τοῦτον τὸν τρόπον ἀλλʼ ἑτέρως ποιῆσαι, ὥστε πλείω πρὸς τὴν χρῆσιν ἐκ τοῦ ἑνὸς ἔχειν οὕτω λέγοντας· μέτρον φράσον μοι τῶν ποδῶν μέτρον λαβών. λαβὼν μέτρον μοι τῶν ποδῶν μέτρον φράσον. οὐ βούλομαι γὰρ τῶν ποδῶν μέτρον λαβεῖν. λαβεῖν μέτρον γὰρ τῶν ποδῶν οὐ βούλομαι.

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.
