τούτοις εἴ τις ἀπιστεῖ, μαθέτω καὶ παρὰ Θεοπόμπου τοῦ Χίου, ἀνδρὸς φιλαλήθους καὶ πολλὰ χρήματα καταναλώσαντος εἰς τὴν περὶ τῆς ἱστορίας ἐξέτασιν ἀκριβῆ. φησὶ γὰρ οὗτος ἐν τῇ ὀγδόῃ καὶ τριακοστῇ τῶν ἱστοριῶν περὶ Κλεάρχου διηγούμενος τοῦ Ἡρακλεωτῶν τῶν ἐν τῷ Πόντῳ τυράννου, ὡς βιαίως ἀνῄρει πολλοὺς καὶ ὡς τοῖς πλείστοις ἐδίδου ἀκόνιτον πιεῖν· ἐπειδὴ οὖν, φησί, πάντες ἔγνωσαν τὴν τοῦ φαρμάκου ταύτην φιλοτησίαν, οὐ προῄεσαν τῶν οἰκιῶν πρὶν φαγεῖν πήγανον· τοῦτο γὰρ τοὺς προφαγόντας μηδὲν πάσχειν πίνοντας τὸ ἀκόνιτον· καὶ κληθῆναί φησι διὰ τὸ φύεσθαι ἐν τόπῳ Ἀκόναις καλουμένῳ ὄντι περὶ τὴν Ἡράκλειαν. ταῦτʼ εἰπόντος τοῦ Δημοκρίτου θαυμάσαντες οἱ πολλοὶ τὴν τοῦ κιτρίου δύναμιν ἀπήσθιον ὡς μὴ πρότερον φαγόντες πιόντες τι. Πάμφιλος δʼ ἐν ταῖς Γλώσσαις Ῥωμαίους φησὶν αὐτὸ κίτρον καλεῖν.

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.
