οἶδα δὲ καὶ Ἑλλάνικον ἐν Ἐθνῶν Ὀνομασίαις λέγοντα ὅτι Λιβύων τῶν Νομάδων τινὲς οὐδὲν ἄλλο κέκτηνται κύλικα καὶ μάχαιραν καὶ ὑδρίαν, καὶ ὅτι οἰκίας ἔχουσιν ἐξ ἀνθερίκου πεποιημένας μικρὰς ὅσον σκιᾶς ἕνεκα, ἃς καὶ περιφέρουσιν ὅπου ἂν πορεύωνται. πολλοῖς δὲ καὶ ἐν Ἰλλυριοῖς τόπος διαβόητός ἐστιν καλούμενος Κύλικες, παρʼ ἐστι τὸ Κάδμου καὶ Ἁρμονίας μνημεῖον, ὡς ἱστορεῖ Φύλαρχος ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ καὶ εἰκοστῇ τῶν Ἱστοριῶν καὶ Πολέμων δʼ ἐν τῷ περὶ τοῦ Μορύχου ἐν Συρακούσαις φησὶν ἐπʼ ἄκρᾳ τῇ νήσῳ πρὸς τῷ Γῆς Ὀλυμπίας ἱερῷ ἐκτὸς τοῦ τείχους ἐσχάραν τινὰ εἶναι, ἀφʼ ἧς, φησί, τὴν κύλικα ναυστολοῦσιν ἀναπλέοντες μέχρι τοῦ γενέσθαι τὴν ἐπὶ τοῦ νεὼ τῆς Ἀθηνᾶς ἀόρατον ἀσπίδα· καὶ οὕτως ἀφιᾶσιν εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν κεραμέαν κύλικα, καθέντες εἰς αὐτὴν ἄνθεα καὶ κηρία καὶ λιβανωτὸν ἄτμητον καὶ ἄλλα ἄττα μετὰ τούτων ἀρώματα.

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.
