ΚΟΧΛΙΑΣ. Φιλύλλιος· οὔκ εἰμι τέττιξ οὐδὲ κοχλίας, γύναι. καὶ πάλιν· μαινίδες ....., σκόμβροι, κοχλίαι, κορακῖνοι. Ἡσίοδος δὲ τὸν κοχλίαν φερέοικον καλεῖ. καὶ Ἀναξίλας δέ· ἀπιστότερος εἶ τῶν κοχλιῶν πολλῷ πάνυ, οἳ περιφέρουσʼ ὑπʼ ἀπιστίας τὰς οἰκίας. Ἀχαιός· τοσούσδʼ Αἴτνη τρέφει κοχλίας κεράστας. προβάλλεται δὲ κἀν τοῖς συμποσίοις γρίφου τάξιν ἔχον περὶ τῶν κοχλιῶν οὕτως· ὑλογενής, ἀνάκανθος, ἀναίματος, ὑγροκέλευθος. Ἀριστοτέλης δὲ ἐν εʹ περὶ ζῴων μορίων φησίν· οἱ κοχλίαι φαίνονται κύοντες ἐν τῷ μετοπώρῳ καὶ τοῦ ἔαρος· μόνοι τε οὗτοι τῶν ὀστρακοδέρμων συνδυαζόμενοι ὤφθησαν. Θεόφραστος δὲ ἐν τῷ περὶ φωλευόντων οἱ κοχλίαι, φησί, φωλεύουσι μὲν καὶ τοῦ χειμῶνος, μᾶλλον δὲ τοῦ θέρους. διὸ καὶ πλεῖστοι φαίνονται τοῖς μετοπωρινοῖς ὕδασιν. δὲ φωλεία τοῦ θέρους καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν δένδρων. λέγονται δέ τινες τῶν κοχλιῶν καὶ σέσιλοι. Ἐπίχαρμος· τούτων ἁπάντων ἀκρίδας ἀνταλλάσσομαι, κόγχων δὲ τὸν σέσιλον. Β. ἄπαγʼ ἐς τὸν φθόρον. Ἀπολλᾶς δὲ Λακεδαιμονίους φησὶ σέμελον τὸν κοχλίαν λέγειν. Ἀπολλόδωρος δὲ ἐν βʹ ἐτυμολογιῶν τῶν κοχλιῶν φησί τινας καλεῖσθαι κωλυσιδείπνους.

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.
