Paragraph
30

νῦν δὲ τὴν τῶν στρωμάτων σύνθεσιν περιβολῇ χωρίζουσι καὶ ὑποβολῇ, φησὶ Πλάτων φιλόσοφος δʼ ὁμώνυμος αὐτῷ ποιητής φησι· κἆτʼ ἐν κλίναις ἐλεφαντόποσιν καὶ στρώμασι πορφυροβάπτοις κἀν φοινικίσι Σαρδιακαῖσιν κοσμησάμενοι κατάκεινται. ἤκμασε δʼ τῶν ποικίλων ὑφή, μάλιστα ἐντέχνων περὶ αὐτὰ γενομένων Ἀκεσᾶ καὶ Ἑλικῶνος τῶν Κυπρίων. ὑφάνται δʼ ἦσαν ἔνδοξοι· καὶ ἦν Ἑλικὼν υἱὸς Ἀκεσᾶ, ὥς φησιν Ἱερώνυμος ἐν Πυθοῖ γοῦν ἐπί τινος ἔργου ἐπιγέγραπται· τεῦξʼ Ἑλικὼν Ἀκεσᾶ Σαλαμίνιος, ἐνὶ χερσὶ πότνια θεσπεσίην Παλλὰς ἔπνευσε χάριν. τοιοῦτος ἦν καὶ Παθυμίας Αἰγύπτιος. ὡς ἐγὼ σκιρτῶ πάλαι ὅπου ῥοδόπνοα στρώματʼ ἔστι, καὶ λούμενος μύροις ψακαστοῖς, φησὶν Ἔφιππος Ἀριστοφάνης· ὅστις ἐν ἡδυόσμοις στρώμασι παννυχίζων τὴν δέσποιναν ἐρείδεις. Σώφρων δὲ στρουθωτὰ ἑλίγματά φησιν ἐντετιμημένα. Ὅμηρος δὲ θαυμασιώτατος τῶν στρωμάτων τὰ μὲν κατώτερα λῖτα εἶναι φάσκει ἤτοι λευκὰ καὶ μὴ βεβαμμένα πεποικιλμένα, τὰ δὲ περιστρώματα ῥήγεα καλά, πορφύρεα.

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.
