ΑΓΚΥΛΗ ποτήριον πρὸς τὴν τῶν κοττάβων παιδιὰν χρήσιμον. Κρατῖνος· πιεῖν δὲ θάνατος οἶνον, ἂν ὕδωρ ἐπῇ. ἀλλʼ ἴσον ἴσῳ μάλιστʼ ἀκράτου δύο χοᾶς πίνουσʼ ἀπʼ ἀγκύλης, ἐπονομάζουσʼ ἅμα ἵησι λάταγας τῷ Κορινθίῳ πέει. καὶ Βακχυλίδης· εὖτε τὴν ἀπʼ ἀγκύλης ἵησι τοῖς νεανίαις, λευκὸν ἀντείνουσα πῆχυν. ἐντεῦθεν ἐννοοῦμεν τοὺς παρʼ Αἰσχύλῳ ἀγκυλητοὺς κοττάβους. λέγονται δὲ καὶ δόρατα ἀγκυλητὰ καὶ μεσάγκυλα ἄλλα· ἀπὸ ἀγκύλης ἤτοι τῆς δεξιᾶς χειρός. καὶ κύλιξ δὲ ἀγκύλη διὰ τὸ ἐπαγκυλοῦν τὴν δεξιὰν χεῖρα ἐν τῇ προέσει. ἦν γὰρ τοῖς παλαιοῖς πεφροντισμένον καλῶς καὶ εὐσχημόνως κότταβον προίεσθαι. καὶ οἱ πολλοὶ ἐπὶ τούτῳ μᾶλλον ἐφρόνουν μέγα ἐπὶ τῷ εὖ ἀκοντίζειν. ὠνομάσθη οὖν ἀπὸ τοῦ τῆς χειρὸς σχηματισμοῦ, ὃν ποιούμενοι εὐρύθμως ἐρρίπτουν εἰς τὸ κοττάβιον. καὶ οἴκους δὲ ἐπιτηδείους κατεσκεύαζον εἰς ταύτην τὴν παιδιάν.

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.
