Paragraph

Μνησίθεος δʼ Ἀθηναῖος ἐν τῷ περὶ ἐδεστῶν τῶν Εὐβοικῶν, φησί, καρύων καστάνων (ἀμφοτέρως γὰρ καλεῖται) δύσπεπτος μὲν κατεργασία τῇ κοιλίᾳ καὶ φυσώδης πέψις γίνεται, παχύνει δὲ τὰς ἕξεις, ἐάν τις αὐτῶν κρατήσῃ. τὰ δὲ ἀμύγδαλα καὶ τὰ Ἡρακλεωτικὰ καὶ τὰ Περσικὰ κάρυα καὶ τἄλλα τὰ τοιαῦτα χείρω ἐστὶ τούτων. χρὴ δὲ μηδὲν ὅλως τῆς τοιαύτης ἰδέας ἄπυρον ἐσθίειν ἔξω τῶν χλωρῶν ἀμυγδάλων, ἀλλὰ τὰ μὲν ἕψειν, τὰ δὲ φρύγειν. τὰ μὲν γὰρ αὐτῶν ἐστι λιπαρὰ τῇ φύσει, καθάπερ ἀμυγδάλαι τε αἱ ξηραὶ καὶ Διὸς βάλανοι, τὰ δὲ σκληρὰ καὶ στρυφνά, καθάπερ αἵ τε φηγοὶ καὶ πᾶν τὸ τοιοῦτον γένος. τῶν οὖν λιπαρῶν ἀφαιρεῖται τὸ λίπος πύρωσις· ἐστὶ γὰρ τοῦτο τὸ χείριστον· τὰ δὲ σκληρὰ καὶ στρυφνὰ πεπαίνεται, ἐάν τις ὀλίγῳ καὶ μαλακῷ πυρὶ χρῆται. δὲ Δίφιλος τὰ κάστανα καὶ Σαρδιανὰς βαλάνους καλεῖ, εἶναι λέγων αὐτὰς καὶ πολυτρόφους καὶ εὐχύλους, δυσοικονομήτους δὲ διὰ τὸ ἐπιμένειν τῷ στομάχῳ· τὰς δὲ φρυγείσας ἀτροφωτέρας μὲν γίνεσθαι, εὐοικονομήτους δέ· τὰς δὲ ἑψομένας ἐμπνευματοῦν μὲν ἧττον, τρέφειν δὲ τούτων μᾶλλον. λόπιμον κάρυόν τε Εὐβοέες, βάλανον δὲ μετεξέτεροι καλέσαντο, Νίκανδρός φησιν Κολοφώνιος ἐν Γεωργικοῖς Ἀγέλοχος δὲ ἄμωτα καλεῖ τὰ καστάνεια· ὅπου δὲ γίνεται τὰ κάρυα τὰ Σινωπικά, ταῦτα δένδρα ἐκάλουν ἄμωτα.

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.
