Paragraph

τοσαῦτα τοῦ Μυρτίλου ἑξῆς καταλέξαντος καὶ πάντων αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῇ μνήμῃ θαυμασάντων Κύνουλκος ἔφη· πουλυμαθημοσύνης, τῆς οὐ κενεώτερον οὐδέν, Ἵππων ἔφη ἄθεος ἀλλὰ καὶ Ἡράκλειτος θεῖός φησι· πουλυμαθίη νόον ἔχειν οὐ διδάσκει. καὶ Τίμων δὲ ἔφη· ἐν δὲ πλατυσμὸς πουλυμαθημοσύνης, τῆς οὐ κενεώτερον ἄλλο. τί γὰρ ὄφελος τῶν τοσούτων ὀνομάτων, γραμματικέ, πάντων ἐπιτρῖψαι μᾶλλον σωφρονίσαι δυναμένων τοὺς ἀκούοντας. καὶ ἐὰν μέν τίς σου πύθηται τίνες ἦσαν οἱ εἰς τὸν δούρειον ἵππον ἐγκατακλεισθέντες, ἑνὸς καὶ δευτέρου ἴσως ἐρεῖς ὄνομα· καὶ οὐδὲ ταῦτʼ ἐκ τῶν Στησιχόρου, σχολῇ γάρ, ἀλλʼ ἐκ τῆς Ἀγία τοῦ Ἀργείου Ἰλίου Πέρσιδος· οὗτος γὰρ παμπόλλους τινὰς κατέλεξεν. ἀλλὰ μὴν οὐδὲ τῶν Ὀδυσσέως ἑταίρων ἔχοις ἂν οὕτως εὐρύθμως καταλέξαι τὰς προσηγορίας καὶ τίνες οἱ ὑπὸ τοῦ Κύκλωπος αὐτῶν καταβρωθέντες ὑπὸ τῶν Λαιστρυγόνων καὶ εἰ ὄντως κατεβρώθησαν· ὅστις οὖν οὐδὲ τοῦτʼ οἶδας, καίτοι συνεχῶς Φυλάρχου μνήμην ποιούμενος ὅτι ἐν ταῖς Κείων πόλεσιν οὔτε ἑταίρας οὔτε αὐλητρίδας ἰδεῖν ἔστι.

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.
