Διόδωρος δʼ Σικελιώτης ἐν τοῖς περὶ Βιβλιοθήκης Ἀκραγαντίνους φησὶ κατασκευάσαι ΓΕΛΩΝΙ κολυμβήθραν πολυτελῆ τὸ περίμετρον ἔχουσαν σταδίων ζʹ, βάθος δὲ πηχῶν κʹ, εἰς ἣν ἐπαγομένων ποταμίων καὶ κρηναίων ὑδάτων ἰχθυοτροφεῖον εἶναι καὶ πολλοὺς παρέχεσθαι ἰχθῦς εἰς τὴν τρυφὴν καὶ ἀπόλαυσιν τῷ Γέλωνι· καθίπτασθαι δὲ καὶ κύκνων πλῆθος εἰς αὐτήν, ὡς γίνεσθαι ἐπιτερπεστάτην τὴν θέαν. ὕστερον δὲ αὕτη διεφθάρη καταχωσθεῖσα. Δοῦρις δὲ ἐν τῇ δʹ τῶν περὶ Ἀγαθοκλέα καὶ πλησίον Ἱππωνίου πόλεως ἄλσος τι δείκνυσθαι κάλλει διάφορον καὶ κατάρρυτον ὕδασιν, ἐν καὶ τόπον τινὰ εἶναι καλούμενον Ἀμαλθείας Κέρας, τὸν Γέλωνα κατασκευάσαι. Σιληνὸς δʼ Καλλατιανὸς ἐν τρίτῳ Σικελικῶν περὶ Συρακούσας φησὶν κῆπον εἶναι πολυτελῶς κατεσκευασμένον, ὃν καλεῖσθαι Μῦθον, ἐν χρηματίζειν ΙΕΡΩΝΑ τὸν βασιλέα. δὲ Πανορμῖτις τῆς Σικελίας πᾶσα κῆπος προσαγορεύεται διὰ τὸ πᾶσα εἶναι πλήρης δένδρων ἡμέρων, ὥς φησιν Καλλίας ἐν ὀγδόῃ τῶν περὶ Ἀγαθοκλέα Ἱστοριῶν Ποσειδώνιος δʼ ἐν τῇ ὀγδόῃ τῶν Ἱστοριῶν περὶ ΔΑΜΟΦΙΛΟΥ λέγων τοῦ Σικελιώτου, διʼ ὃν δουλικὸς ἐκινήθη πόλεμος, ὅτι τρυφῆς ἦν οἰκεῖος, γράφει καὶ ταῦτα· τρυφῆς οὖν δοῦλος ἦν καὶ κακουργίας, διὰ μὲν τῆς χώρας τετρακύκλους ἀπήνας περιαγόμενος καὶ ἵππους καὶ θεράποντας ὡραίους καὶ παραδρομὴν ἀνάγωγον κολάκων τε καὶ παίδων στρατιωτικῶν. ὕστερον δὲ πανοικίᾳ ἐφυβρίστως κατέστρεψε τὸν βίον ὑπὸ τῶν οἰκετῶν περιυβρισθείς.

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.
