Paragraph
13

λέγει δὲ καὶ τὴν συκῆν ἐὰν ἐν σκίλλῃ φυτευθῇ θᾶττον παραγίνεσθαι καὶ ὑπὸ σκωλήκων μὴ διαφθείρεσθαι· καὶ πάντα δὲ τὰ ἐν σκίλλῃ φυτευθέντα καὶ θᾶττον αὐξάνεσθαι καὶ εὐβλαστῆ γίγνεσθαι. πάλιν δὲ Θεόφραστος ἐν τῷ βʹ τῶν αἰτίων Ἰνδική, φησί, συκῆ καλουμένη θαυμαστὴ οὖσα τῷ μεγέθει μικρὸν ἔχει τὸν καρπὸν καὶ ὀλίγον, ὡς ἂν εἰς τὴν βλάστησιν ἐξαναλίσκουσα ἅπασαν τὴν τροφήν. ἐν δὲ τῷ δευτέρῳ τῆς φυτικῆς ἱστορίας φιλόσοφός φησιν· ἔστι καὶ ἄλλο γένος συκῆς ἔν τε τῇ Ἑλλάδι καὶ περὶ Κιλικίαν καὶ Κύπρον ὀλονθοφόρον, τὸ μὲν σῦκον ἔμπροσθε φέρει τοῦ θρίου, τὸν δὲ ὄλονθον ἐξόπισθεν. αἳ δὲ ὅλως ἐκ τοῦ ἔνου βλαστοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐκ τοῦ νέου. πρῶτον δὲ τοῦτο τῶν σύκων πέπονά τε καὶ γλυκὺν ἔχει καὶ οὐχ ὥσπερ τὸν παρʼ ἡμῖν. γίνεται δὲ καὶ μείζων οὗτος πολὺ τῶν σύκων· δʼ ὥρα μετὰ τὴν βλάστησιν οὐ πολύ. οἶδα δὲ καὶ ἄλλα σύκων ὀνόματα λεγόμενα· βασίλεια, συκοβασίλεια, κιρροκοιλάδια καὶ ὑλάδια, σαρκελάφεια, καπύρια, πικρίδια, δρακόντια, λευκόφαια, μελανόφαια, κρήνεια, μυλαικά, ἀσκαλώνια.

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.
