Paragraph
67

ὅτι Νίκανδρος Μεγαρῆας βολβοὺς ἐπαινεῖ. Θεόφραστος δʼ ἐν ζʹ Φυτικῶν ἐνιαχοῦ, φησίν, οὕτω γλυκεῖς εἰσιν οἱ βολβοὶ ὥστε καὶ ὠμοὺς ἐσθίεσθαι, ὥσπερ ἐν τῇ Ταυρικῇ Χερρονήσῳ. τὰ αὐτὰ ἱστορεῖ καὶ Φαινίας ἔστι δὲ καὶ γένος, φησί, βολβῶν, Θεόφραστος, ἐριοφόρων, φύεται ἐν αἰγιαλοῖς. ἔχει δὲ τὸ ἔριον ὑπὸ τοὺς πρώτους χιτῶνας, ὥστε ἀνὰ μέσον εἶναι τοῦ ἐδωδίμου τοῦ ἐντὸς καὶ τοῦ ἔξω. ὑφαίνεται δʼ ἐξ αὐτοῦ καὶ πόδεια καὶ ἄλλα ἱμάτια, ὡς καὶ Φαινίας φησί, τὸ δὲ ἐν Ἰνδοῖς τριχῶδές ἐστι. περὶ δὲ τῆς τῶν βολβῶν σκευασίας Φιλήμων φησί· τὸν βολβόν, εἰ βούλει, σκόπει ὅσα δαπανήσας εὐδοκιμεῖ, τυρόν, μέλι, σήσαμον, ἔλαιον, κρόμυον, ὄξος, σίλφιον. αὐτὸς δʼ ἐφʼ αὑτοῦ ʼστιν πονηρὸς καὶ πικρός. Ἡρακλείδης δʼ Ταραντῖνος τοῦ συμποσίου περιγράφων τοὺς βολβούς φησι· περιγράφειν δεῖ τὴν πολλὴν βρῶσιν καὶ μάλιστα τῶν ἐχόντων ὅλκιμόν τι καὶ γλίσχρον, οἷον ᾠῶν, βολβῶν, ἀκροκωλίων, κοχλιῶν καὶ τῶν ὁμοίων. ἐπιμένει γὰρ τῇ κοιλίᾳ πλείονας χρόνους καὶ ἐμπλεκόμενα παρακατέχει τὰ ὑγρά.

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.
