Paragraph
25

ΚΙΤΡΙΟΝ. περὶ τούτου πολλὴ ζήτησις ἐνέπεσε τοῖς δειπνοσοφισταῖς, εἴ τίς ἐστιν αὐτοῦ μνήμη παρὰ τοῖς παλαιοῖς. Μυρτίλος μὲν γὰρ ἔφασκεν, ὥσπερ εἰς αἶγας ἡμᾶς ἀγρίας ἀποπέμπων τοὺς ζητοῦντας, Ἡγήσανδρον τὸν Δελφὸν ἐν τοῖς ὑπομνήμασιν αὐτοῦ μνημονεύειν, τῆς δὲ λέξεως τὰ νῦν οὐ μεμνῆσθαι. πρὸς ὃν ἀντιλέγων Πλούταρχος ἀλλὰ μὴν ἔγωγε, φησί, διορίζομαι μηδʼ ὅλως τὸν Ἡγήσανδρον τοῦτο εἰρηκέναι, διʼ αὐτὸ τοῦτʼ ἐξαναγνοὺς αὐτοῦ πάντα τὰ ὑπομνήματα, ἐπεὶ καὶ ἄλλος τις τῶν ἑταίρων τοῦτʼ ἔχειν οὕτω διεβεβαιοῦτο, ὁρμώμενος ἔκ τινων σχολικῶν ὑπομνημάτων ἀνδρὸς οὐκ ἀδόξου· ὥστε ὥρα σοι, φίλε Μυρτίλε, ἄλλον ζητεῖν μάρτυρα. Αἰμιλιανὸς δὲ ἔλεγεν Ἰόβαν τὸν Μαυρουσίων βασιλέα, ἄνδρα πολυμαθέστατον, ἐν τοῖς περὶ Λιβύης συγγράμμασι μνημονεύοντα τοῦ κιτρίου καλεῖσθαι φάσκειν αὐτὸ παρὰ τοῖς Λίβυσι μῆλον Ἑσπερικόν, ἀφʼ ὧν καὶ Ἡρακλέα κομίσαι εἰς τὴν Ἑλλάδα τὰ χρύσεα διὰ τὴν ἰδέαν λεγόμενα μῆλα. τὰ δὲ τῶν Ἑσπερίδων λεγόμενα μῆλα ὅτι ἐς τοὺς Διὸς καὶ Ἥρας λεγομένους γάμους ἀνῆκεν γῆ Ἀσκληπιάδης εἴρηκεν ἐν ἑξηκοστῷ Αἰγυπτιακῶν πρὸς τούτους ἀποβλέψας Δημόκριτος ἔφη· εἰ μέν τι τούτων Ἰόβας ἱστορεῖ, χαιρέτω Λιβυκαῖσι βίβλοις ἔτι τε ταῖς Ἄννωνος πλάναις. ἐγὼ δὲ τὸ μὲν ὄνομα οὔ φημι κεῖσθαι τοῦ κιτρίου παρὰ τοῖς παλαιοῖς τοῦτο, τὸ δὲ πρᾶγμα ὑπὸ τοῦ Ἐρεσίου Θεοφράστου οὕτως λεγόμενον ἐν τῇ περὶ φυτῶν ἱστορίᾳ ἀναγκάζει με ἐπὶ τῶν κιτρίων ἀκούειν τὰ σημαινόμενα.

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.
