κότταβος δʼ ἐκαλεῖτο καὶ τὸ τιθέμενον ἆθλον τοῖς νικῶσιν ἐν τῷ πότῳ, ὡς Εὐριπίδης παρίστησιν ἐν Οἰνεῖ λέγων οὕτως· πυκνοῖς δʼ ἔβαλλον Βακχίου τοξεύμασιν κάρα γέροντος· τὸν βαλόντα δὲ στέφειν ἐγὼ ʼτετάγμην, ἆθλα κότταβον διδούς. ἐκαλεῖτο δὲ κότταβος καὶ τὸ ἄγγος εἰς ἔβαλλον τὰς λάταγας, ὡς Κρατῖνος ἐν Νεμέσει δείκνυσιν· ὅτι δὲ καὶ χαλκοῦν ἦν, Εὔπολις ἐν Βάπταις λέγει· χαλκῷ περὶ κοττάβῳ. Πλάτων δὲ ἐν Διὶ Κακουμένῳ παιδιᾶς εἶδος παροίνιον τὸν κότταβον εἶναι ἀποδίδωσιν, ἐν ἐξίσταντο καὶ τῶν σκευαρίων οἱ δυσκυβοῦντες. λέγει δʼ οὕτως· πρὸς κότταβον παίζειν, ἕως ἂν σφῷν ἐγὼ τὸ δεῖπνον ἔνδον σκευάσω. ΗΡ. πάνυ βούλομαι· ἀλλανεμος ἐστʼ. Α. ἀλλʼ εἰς θυίαν παιστέον. ΗΡ. φέρε τὴν θυίαν, αἶρʼ ὕδωρ, ποτήρια παράθετε. παίζωμεν δὲ περὶ φιλημάτων. Α. ........... ἀγεννῶς οὐκ ἐῶ παίζειν. τίθημι κοττάβεια σφῷν ἐγὼ τασδί τε τὰς κρηπῖδας, ἃς αὕτη φορεῖ, καὶ τὸν κότυλον τὸν σόν. ΗΡ. βαβαιάξ· οὑτοσὶ μείζων ἀγὼν τῆς Ἰσθμιάδος ἐπέρχεται.

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.
