Paragraph
39

τοῦ δὲ Αἰγυπτίου μύρου μνημονεύων Ἀχαιὸς ἐν Ἄθλοις φησιν· ἰσάργυρόν τʼ εἰς χεῖρα Κυπρίου λίθου δώσουσι κόσμον χριμάτων τʼ Αἰγυπτίων ... μήποτε, φησὶν Δίδυμος, τὴν καλουμένην στακτὴν λέγει, διὰ τὴν σμύρναν ἣν εἰς Αἴγυπτον καταγομένην κομίζεσθαι πρὸς τοὺς Ἕλληνας. Ἱκέσιος δʼ ἐν βʹ περὶ Ὕλης τῶν μύρων, φησίν, μέν ἐστιν χρίματα, δʼ ἀλείμματα. καὶ ῥόδινον μὲν πρὸς πότον ἐπιτήδειον, ἔτι δὲ μύρσινον, μήλινον· τοῦτο δʼ ἐστὶν καὶ εὐστόμαχον καὶ ληθαργικοῖς χρήσιμον. τὸ δʼ οἰνάνθινον εὐστόμαχον ὂν καὶ τὴν διάνοιαν ἀπαραπόδιστον φυλάσσει. καὶ τὸ σαμψούχινον δὲ καὶ ἑρπύλλινον ἐπιτήδεια πρὸς πότον καὶ κρόκινον τὸ χωρὶς σμύρνης πολλῆς. καὶ στακτὴ δὲ ἐπιτήδειος πρὸς πότον, ἔτι δὲ νάρδος. τὸ δὲ τήλινον καὶ γλυκύ ἐστι καὶ ἁπαλόν. τὸ δὲ λευκόινον καὶ εὐῶδες καὶ σφόδρα πεπτικόν. Θεόφραστος δὲ ἐν τῷ περὶ Ὀδμῶν συντίθεσθαί φησι μύρα ἀπʼ ἀνθέων μὲν ῥόδινον καὶ λευκόινον καὶ σούσινον (καὶ γὰρ τοῦτο ἐκ τῶν κρίνων), ἔτι δὲ τὸ σισύμβρινον καὶ ἑρπύλλινον, ἔτι δὲ κύπρινον καὶ κρόκινον· βέλτιστον δʼ ἐν Αἰγίνῃ καὶ Κιλικίᾳ. ἀπὸ δὲ φύλλων τὸ μύρρινον καὶ τὸ οἰνάνθινον· αὕτη δʼ ἐν Κύπρῳ φύεται ὀρεινὴ καὶ πολύοσμος· ἀπὸ δὲ τῆς ἐν δὲ Ἑλλάδι οὐ γίνεται διὰ τὸ ἄοσμον. ἀπὸ δὲ ῥιζῶν τό τʼ ἴρινον, καὶ τὸ νάρδινον, καὶ τὸ ἀμαράκινον ἐκ τοῦ κόστου.

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.
