Paragraph
5

ἀγκυλοῦντα γὰρ δεῖ σφόδρα τὴν χεῖρα εὐρύθμως πέμπειν τὸν κότταβον, ὡς Δικαίαρχός φησιν καὶ Πλάτων δʼ ἐν τῷ Διὶ τῷ Κακουμένῳ παρακελεύεται δέ τις τῷ Ἡρακλεῖ μὴ σκληρὰν ἔχειν τὴν χεῖρα μέλλοντα κοτταβίζειν. ἐκάλουν δʼ ἀπʼ ἀγκύλης τὴν τοῦ κοττάβου πρόεσιν διὰ τὸ ἐπαγκυλοῦν τὴν δεξιὰν χεῖρα ἐν τοῖς ἀποκοτταβισμοῖς. οἳ δὲ ποτηρίου εἶδος τὴν ἀγκύλην φασί. Βακχυλίδης ἐν Ἐρωτικοῖς· εὖτε τὴν ἀπʼ ἀγκύλης ἵησι τοῖσδε τοῖς νεανίαις, λευκὸν ἀντείνασα πῆχυν. καὶ Αἰσχύλος δʼ ἐν Ὀστολόγοις ἀγκυλητοὺς λέγει κοττάβους διὰ τούτων· Εὐρύμαχος, οὐ γὰρ ἄλλος, οὐδὲν ἧσσον ... ὕβριζʼ ὑβρισμοὺς οὐκ ἐναισίους ἐμοί. ἦν μὲν γὰρ αὐτῷ κότταβος ἀεὶ τοὐμὸν κάρα, τοῦ δʼ ἀγκυλητοῦ κοσσάβιός ἐστι σκοπὸς ἐκτεμὼν ἡβῶσα χεὶρ ἐφίετο. ὅτι δὲ ἆθλον προὔκειτο τῷ εὖ προεμένῳ τὸν κότταβον προείρηκε μὲν καὶ Ἀντιφάνης· ᾠὰ γάρ ἐστι καὶ πεμμάτια καὶ τραγήματα. ὁμοίως δὲ διεξέρχονται Κηφισόδωρος ἐν Τροφωνίῳ καὶ Καλλίας Διοκλῆς ἐν Κύκλωψι καὶ Εὔπολις Ἕρμιππός τε ἐν τοῖς Ἰάμβοις τὸ δὲ καλούμενον κατακτὸν κοττάβιον τοιοῦτόν ἐστιν· λυχνίον ἐστὶν ὑψηλόν, ἔχον τὸν μάνην καλούμενον, ἐφʼ ὃν τὴν καταβαλλομένην ἔδει πεσεῖν πλάστιγγα, ἐντεῦθεν δὲ πίπτειν εἰς λεκάνην ὑποκειμένην πληγεῖσαν τῷ κοττάβῳ· καί τις ἦν ἀκριβὴς εὐχέρεια τῆς βολῆς. μνημονεύει δὲ τοῦ μάνου Νικοχάρης ἐν Λάκωσιν

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.
