Paragraph
52

ΜΑΛΑΧΑΙ. Ἡσίοδος· οὐδʼ ὅσον ἐν μαλάχῃ τε καὶ ἀσφοδέλῳ μέγʼ ὄνειαρ. τοῦτο Ἀττικόν. ἐγὼ δέ, φησίν, ἐν πολλοῖς ἀντιγράφοις εὗρον τοῦ Ἀντιφάνους Μίνωος διὰ τοῦ ο γεγραμμένον· τρώγοντες μολόχης ῥίζαν. καὶ Ἐπίχαρμος· ... πραύτερος ἔγωγε μολόχας. Φαινίας δʼ ἐν τοῖς Φυτικοῖς φησι· τῆς ἡμέρου μαλάχης σπερματικὸς τύπος καλεῖται πλακοῦς, ἐμφερὴς ὢν αὐτῷ· τὸ μὲν γὰρ κτενῶδες ἀνάλογον καθάπερ τοῦ πλακοῦντος κρηπίς, κατὰ μέσον δὲ τοῦ πλακουντικοῦ ὄγκου τὸ κέντρον ὀμφαλικόν. καὶ περιληφθείσης τῆς κρηπῖδος ὅμοιον γίνεται τοῖς θαλαττίοις περιγεγραμμένοις ἐχίνοις. δὲ Σίφνιος Δίφιλος ἱστορεῖ ὡς μαλάχη ἐστὶν εὔχυλος, λεαντικὴ ἀρτηρίας, τὰς ἐπιπολαίους ἀποκρίνουσα δριμύτητας. ἐπιτήδειόν τε εἶναί φησιν αὐτὴν τοῖς τῶν νεφρῶν καὶ τῆς κύστεως ἐρεθισμοῖς εὐέκκριτόν τε εἶναι μετρίως καὶ τρόφιμον, κρείττω δὲ τὴν ἀγρίαν τῆς κηπευομένης. Ἕρμιππος δʼ Καλλιμάχειος καὶ εἰς τὴν καλουμένην φησὶν ἄλιμον προσέτι τε ἄδιψον ἐμβάλλεσθαι τὴν μαλάχην οὖσαν χρησιμωτάτην.

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.
