τοὺς δὲ ΚΟΥΡΗΤΑΣ Φύλαρχος διὰ τῆς ιαʹ τῶν Ἱστοριῶν Αἰσχύλον ἱστορεῖν διὰ τὴν τρυφὴν τυχεῖν τῆς προσηγορίας· χλιδῶν τε πλόκαμος ὥστε παρθένοις ἁβραῖς· ὅθεν καλεῖν Κουρῆτα λαὸν ᾔνεσαν. Ἀγάθων δʼ ἐν τῷ Θυέστῃ τοὺς τὴν Πρώνακτος θυγατέρα μνηστεύοντας τοῖς τε λοιποῖς πᾶσιν ἐξησκημένους ἐλθεῖν καὶ κομῶντας τὰς κεφαλάς, ἐπεὶ δʼ ἀπέτυχον τοῦ γάμου, κόμας ἐκειράμεσθα, φησίν, μάρτυρας τρυφῆς, που ποθεινὸν χρῆμα παιζούσῃ φρενί. ἐπώνυμον γοῦν εὐθὺς ἔσχομεν κλέος Κουρῆτες εἶναι, κουρίμου χάριν τριχός. καὶ ΚΥΜΑΙΟΙ δὲ οἱ ἐν Ἰταλίᾳ, ὥς φησιν Ὑπέροχος ποιήσας τὰ εἰς αὐτὸν ἀναφερόμενα Κυμαικά, διετέλεσαν χρυσοφοροῦντες καὶ ἀνθιναῖς ἐσθῆσι χρώμενοι καὶ μετὰ γυναικῶν εἰς τοὺς ἀγροὺς ἐξιόντες ἐπὶ ζευγῶν ὀχούμενοι. περὶ μὲν οὖν ἐθνῶν καὶ πόλεων τρυφῆς τοσαῦτα μνημονεύω.

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.
