Ἀρτέμων δʼ ἐν τῷ πρώτῳ περὶ Διονυσιακοῦ Συστήματος Τιμόθεόν φησι τὸν Μιλήσιον παρὰ τοῖς πολλοῖς δόξαι πολυχορδοτέρῳ συστήματι χρήσασθαι τῇ μαγάδι· διὸ καὶ παρὰ τοῖς Λάκωσιν εὐθυνόμενον ὡς παραφθείροι τὴν ἀρχαίαν μουσικήν, καὶ μέλλοντός τινος ἐκτέμνειν αὐτοῦ τὰς περιττὰς τῶν χορδῶν, δεῖξαι παρʼ αὐτοῖς ὑπάρχοντα Ἀπολλωνίσκον πρὸς τὴν αὑτοῦ σύνταξιν ἰσόχορδον λύραν ἔχοντα καὶ ἀφεθῆναι. Δοῦρις δʼ ἐν τῷ περὶ Τραγῳδίας ὠνομάσθαι φησὶ τὴν μάγαδιν ἀπὸ Μάγδιος Θρᾳκὸς γένος. Ἀπολλόδωρος δʼ ἐν τῇ πρὸς τὴν Ἀριστοκλέους Ἐπιστολὴν Ἀντιγραφῇ νῦν, φησίν, ἡμεῖς λέγομεν ψαλτήριον, τοῦτʼ εἶναι μάγαδιν, δὲ κλεψίαμβος κληθείς, ἔτι δʼ τρίγωνος καὶ ἔλυμος καὶ τὸ ἐννεάχορδον ἀμαυρότερα τῇ χρείᾳ καθέστηκεν. καὶ Ἀλκμὰν δέ φησιν· μάγαδιν δʼ ἀποθέσθαι. Σοφοκλῆς δὲ ἐν Θαμύρᾳ· πηκταὶ δὲ λύραι καὶ μαγάδιδες τά τʼ ἐν Ἕλλησι ξόανʼ ἡδυμελῆ. Τελέστης δʼ ἐν Ὑμεναίῳ διθυράμβῳ πεντάχορδόν φησιν αὐτὴν εἶναι διὰ τούτων· ἄλλος δʼ ἄλλαν κλαγγὰν ἱεὶς κερατόφωνον ἐρέθιζε μάγαδιν, ἐν πενταρράβδῳ χορδᾶν ἀρθμῷ χέρα καμψιδίαυλον ἀναστρωφῶν τάχος ... οἶδα δὲ καὶ ἄλλο ὄργανον τῶν Θρᾳκῶν οἱ βασιλεῖς ἐν τοῖς δείπνοις χρῶνται, ὥς φησιν Νικομήδης ἐν τῷ περὶ Ὀρφέως φοίνικα δὲ τὸ ὄργανον Ἔφορος καὶ Σκάμων ἐν τοῖς περὶ Εὑρημάτων ὑπὸ Φοινίκων εὑρεθὲν ταύτης τυχεῖν τῆς προσηγορίας· Σῆμος δὲ Δήλιος ἐν πρώτῳ Δηλιάδος διὰ τὸ ἐκ τοῦ ἐν Δήλῳ φοίνικος τοὺς ἀγκῶνας αὐτοῦ ἐξειργάσθαι. τῇ σαμβύκῃ πρώτην φησὶ χρήσασθαι Σίβυλλαν, ἧς Σκάμων προειρημένος· ὀνομασθῆναι δʼ αὐτὴν εὑρεθεῖσαν ὑπὸ Σάμβυκος τινός.

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.
