Book 14

Paragraph
6

οὐκ ἠπόρει δʼ ἡμῶν τὸ συμπόσιον οὐδὲ τῶν φιλοσκωπτούντων. περὶ δὲ τοιούτου τινὸς πάλιν Χρύσιππος ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ γράφει· φιλοσκώπτης τις μέλλων ὑπὸ τοῦ δημίου σφάττεσθαι ἔτι ἕν τι ἔφη θέλειν ὥσπερ τὸ κύκνειον ᾄσας ἀποθανεῖν. ἐπιτρέψαντος δʼ ἐκείνου ἔσκωψεν. ὑπὸ δὴ τῶν τοιούτων πολλάκις Μυρτίλος σκωφθέντα καὶ ἀγανακτήσαντα εἶπεν καλῶς Λυσίμαχον τὸν βασιλέα πεποιηκέναι. Τελέσφορον γὰρ ἕνα τῶν ὑπάρχων αὐτοῦ, ἐπειδὴ ἔσκωψέ ποτε ἐν συμποσίῳ τὴν Ἀρσινόην (γυνὴ δʼ ἦν τοῦ Λυσιμάχου) ὡς ἐμετικὴν οὖσαν, εἰπών κακῶν κατάρχεις τήνδʼ ἐμοῦσαν εἰσάγων. Λυσίμαχος ἀκούσας ἐμβληθῆναι αὐτὸν ἐκέλευσεν εἰς γαλεάγραν καὶ δίκην θηρίου περιφερόμενον καὶ τρεφόμενον, κολαζόμενον οὕτως ἐποίησεν ἀποθανεῖν. σὺ δέ, Οὐλπιανέ, εἰ τὴν γαλεάγραν ζητεῖς, ἔχεις παρʼ Ὑπερείδῃ τῷ ῥήτορι· ὅπου δέ, σὺ ζήτει. καὶ Ταχὼς δʼ Αἰγυπτίων βασιλεὺς Ἀγησίλαον σκώψας τὸν Λακεδαιμονίων βασιλέα, ὅτʼ ἦλθεν αὐτῷ συμμαχήσων, (ἦν γὰρ βραχὺς τὸ σῶμα) ἰδιώτης ἐγένετο, ἀποστάντος ἐκείνου τῆς συμμαχίας. τὸ δὲ σκῶμμα τοῦτʼ ἦν· ὤδινεν ὄρος, Ζεὺς δʼ ἐφοβεῖτο, τὸ δʼ ἔτεκεν μῦν. ὅπερ ἀκούσας Ἀγησίλαος καὶ ὀργισθεὶς ἔφη φανήσομαί σοί ποτε καὶ λέων. ὕστερον γὰρ ἀφισταμένων τῶν Αἰγυπτίων, ὥς φησι Θεόπομπος καὶ Λυκέας Ναυκρατίτης ἐν τοῖς Αἰγυπτιακοῖς, οὐδὲν αὐτῷ συμπράξας ἐποίησεν ἐκπεσόντα τῆς ἀρχῆς φυγεῖν εἰς Πέρσας.

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.
