Paragraph
19

Ἀριστόβουλος δʼ Κασανδρεύς φησιν ἐν Μιλήτῳ κρήνην εἶναι Ἀχίλλειον καλουμένην, ἧς τὸ μὲν ῥεῦμα εἶναι γλυκύτατον, τὸ δʼ ἐφεστηκὸς ἁλμυρόν· ἀφʼ ἧς οἱ Μιλήσιοι περιρράνασθαί φασι τὸν ἥρωα, ὅτε ἀπέκτεινε Τράμβηλον τὸν τῶν Λελέγων βασιλέα. φασὶ δὲ καὶ ὅτι τὸ περὶ Καππαδοκίαν ὕδωρ πολύ τε ὂν καὶ κάλλιστον οὐ σήπεται ἀπόρρυσιν οὐκ ἔχον, πλὴν εἰ μὴ ὑπὸ γῆν ῥέοι. Πτολεμαῖος δὲ βασιλεὺς ἐν ἑβδόμῳ ὑπομνημάτων ἐπὶ Κορίνθου προάγουσι, φησίν, ἡμῖν διὰ τῆς Κοντοπορείας καλουμένης κατὰ τὴν ἀκρώρειαν προσβαίνουσιν εἶναι κρήνην νᾶμα ἀνιεῖσαν χιόνος ψυχρότερον· ἐξ ἧς πολλοὺς μὴ πίνειν ἀποπαγήσεσθαι προσδοκῶντας, αὐτὸς δὲ λέγει πεπωκέναι. Φύλαρχος δέ φησιν ἐν Κλείτορι εἶναι κρήνην ἀφʼ ἧς τοὺς πιόντας οὐκ ἀνέχεσθαι τὴν τοῦ οἴνου ὀδμήν. Κλέαρχός φησι τὸ μὲν ὕδωρ ὥσπερ καὶ τὸ γάλα λευκὸν λέγεσθαι, οἶνον δὲ καθάπερ καὶ τὸ νέκταρ ἐρυθρόν, μέλι δὲ καὶ ἔλαιον χλωρόν, τὸ δʼ ἐκ τῶν μόρων θλιβόμενον μέλαν. Εὔβουλος εὑρετικούς φησι τὸ ὕδωρ ποιεῖν τοὺς πίνοντας αὐτὸ μόνον, τὸν δʼ οἶνον ἡμῶν τῷ φρονεῖν ἐπισκοτεῖν. τὰ αὐτὰ δʼ ἰαμβεῖα καὶ Ὠφελίων φησί

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.
