Paragraph
26

τῶν οὖν μεγαλομίσθων ἑταιρῶν ἀποτρέπω σε, γραμματικώτατε, διότι τὰς μὲν ἄλλας ἔστιν αὐλούσας ἰδεῖν αὐλητρίδας πάσας Ἀπόλλωνος νόμον, ............. Διὸς νόμον· αὗται δὲ μόνον αὐλοῦσιν Ἱέρακος νόμον, Ἐπικράτης φησὶν ἐν Ἀντιλαίδι, ἐν δράματι καὶ περὶ τῆς πολυθρυλήτου Λαίδος τάδε λέγει· αὕτη δὲ Λαὶς ἀργός ἐστι καὶ πότις, τὸ καθʼ ἡμέραν ὁρῶσα πίνειν κἀσθίειν μόνον, πεπονθέναι δὲ ταὐτά μοι δοκεῖ τοῖς ἀετοῖς· οὗτοι γὰρ ὅταν ὦσιν νέοι ἐκ τῶν ὀρῶν πρόβατʼ ἐσθίουσι καὶ λαγὼς μετέωρʼ ἀναρπάζοντες ὑπὸ τῆς ἰσχύος· ὅταν δὲ γηράσκωσιν ἤδη, τότε θεῶν ἐπὶ τοὺς νεὼς ἵζουσι πεινῶντες κακῶς· κἄπειτα τοῦτʼ εἶναι νομίζεται τέρας. καὶ Λαὶς οὖν ὀρθῶς νομίζοιτʼ ἂν τέρας. αὕτη γὰρ ὁπότʼ ἦν μὲν νεοττὸς καὶ νέα, ὑπὸ τῶν στατήρων ἦν ἀπηγριωμένη, εἶδες δʼ ἂν αὐτῆς Φαρνάβαζον θᾶττον ἄν· ἐπεὶ δὲ δολιχὸν τοῖς ἔτεσιν ἤδη τρέχει τὰς ἁρμονίας τε διαχαλᾷ τοῦ σώματος, ἰδεῖν μὲν αὐτὴν ῥᾷόν ἐστιν πτύσαι· ἐξέρχεταί τε πανταχόσʼ ἤδη πιομένη, δέχεται δὲ καὶ στατῆρα καὶ τριώβολον, προσίεται δὲ καὶ γέροντα καὶ νέον· οὕτω δὲ τιθασὸς γέγονεν ὥστʼ, φίλτατε, τἀργύριον ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς ἤδη λαμβάνει. μνημονεύει δὲ τῆς Λαίδος καὶ Ἀναξανδρίδης ἐν Γεροντομανίᾳ καὶ ἄλλας ἑταίρας αὐτῇ συγκαταλέγει διὰ τούτων· τὴν ἐκ Κορίνθου Λαίδʼ οἶσθα; Β. πῶς γὰρ οὔ; τὴν ἡμετέρειόν γʼ. Α. ἦν ἐκείνῃ τις φίλη Ἄντεια. Β. καὶ τοῦθʼ ἡμέτερον ἦν παίγνιον. Α. νὴ τὸν Δίʼ, ἤνθει τότε Λαγίσκʼ, ἤνθει τότε καὶ Θεολύτη μάλʼ εὐπρόσωπος καὶ καλή, ὑπέφαινʼ ἐσομένη δʼ Ὤκιμον λαμπρὰ πάνυ.

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.
