Book 2


Ἄλεξις χαρίεις πρόπομα ὅλον παρατίθησι τοῖς διακρίνειν δυναμένοις· ἔλαθον γενόμενος οὗ τὸ πρᾶγμʼ ἠβούλετο. κατὰ χειρὸς ἐδόθη· τὴν τράπεζαν ἧκʼ ἔχων, ἐφʼ ἧς ἐπέκειτʼ οὐ τυρὸς οὐδʼ ἐλαῶν γένη οὐδὲ παρέχουσαι κνῖσαν ἡμῖν πλείονα παροψίδες καὶ λῆρος, ἀλλὰ παρετέθη ὑπερηφάνως ὄζουσα τῶν Ὡρῶν λοπάς, τὸ τοῦ πόλου τοῦ παντὸς ἡμισφαίριον. ἅπαντʼ ἐνῆν τἀκεῖ γὰρ ἐν ταύτῃ καλά, ἰχθῦς, ἔριφοι, διέτρεχε τούτων σκορπίος, ὑπέφαινεν ᾠῶν ἡμίτομα τοὺς ἀστέρας. ἐπεβάλομεν τὰς χεῖρας. μὲν ἐμοὶ λαλῶν ἅμα καὶ διανεύων ἠσχολεῖθʼ· πᾶς δʼ ἀγὼν ἐπʼ ἐμὲ κατήντα. τὸ πέρας οὐκ ἀνῆχʼ ἕως τὴν λοπάδʼ ὀρύττων ἀποδέδειχα κόσκινον.

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.
