Book 12


οὐ μόνος δʼ Ἀρίστιππος καὶ οἱ ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ τὴν κατὰ κίνησιν ἡδονὴν ἠσπάζοντο, ἀλλὰ καὶ ΕΠΙΚΟΥΡΟΣ καὶ οἱ ἀπὸ τούτου. καὶ ἵνα μὴ τοὺς καταιγισμοὺς λέγω καὶ τὰ ἐπεντρώματα, ἅπερ πολλάκις προφέρεται Ἐπίκουρος, καὶ τοὺς γαργαλισμοὺς καὶ τὰ νύγματα, ἐν τῷ περὶ Τέλους εἴρηκεν, τούτων μνηθήσομαι. φησὶν γάρ· οὐ γὰρ ἔγωγε δύναμαι νοῆσαι τἀγαθὸν ἀφαιρῶν μὲν τὰς διὰ χυλῶν ἡδονάς, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ τὰς διʼ ἀφροδισίων, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ τὰς διʼ ἀκροαμάτων, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ καὶ τὰς διὰ μορφῆς κατʼ ὄψιν ἡδείας κινήσεις. καὶ Μητρόδωρος ἐν ταῖς Ἐπιστολαῖς φησιν· περὶ γαστέρα, φυσιολόγε Τιμόκρατες, περὶ γαστέρα κατὰ φύσιν βαδίζων λόγος τὴν ἅπασαν ἔχει σπουδήν. καὶ Ἐπίκουρος δέ φησιν· ἀρχὴ καὶ ῥίζα παντὸς ἀγαθοῦ τῆς γαστρὸς ἡδονή· καὶ τὰ σοφὰ καὶ τὰ περισσὰ ἐπὶ ταύτην ἔχει τὴν ἀναφοράν. κἀν τῷ περὶ Τέλους δὲ πάλιν φησίν· τιμητέον τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὰς ἀρετὰς καὶ τὰ τοιουτότροπα, ἐὰν ἡδονὴν παρασκευάζῃ· ἐὰν δὲ μὴ παρασκευάζῃ, χαίρειν ἐατέον, σαφῶς ὑπουργὸν ἐν τούτοις ποιῶν τὴν ἀρετὴν τῆς ἡδονῆς καὶ θεραπαίνης τάξιν ἐπέχουσαν. κἀν ἄλλοις δέ φησιν· προσπτύω τῷ καλῷ καὶ τοῖς κενῶς αὐτὸ θαυμάζουσιν, ὅταν μηδεμίαν ἡδονὴν ποιῇ.

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.
