ἑξῆς δὲ τοῖς προειρημένοις κατʼ ἰδίαν ἐπεισενεχθέντων ἡμῖν πολλῶν ὀστρέων καὶ τῶν ἄλλων ὀστρακοδέρμων σχεδὸν τὰ πλεῖστα αὐτῶν μνήμης ἠξιωμένα παρʼ Ἐπιχάρμῳ ἐν Ἥβας Γάμῳ εὑρίσκω διὰ τούτων· ἄγει δὲ παντοδαπὰ κογχύλια, λεπάδας, ἀσπέδους, κραβύζους, κικιβάλους, τηθυνάκια, .... βαλάνους, πορφύρας, ὄστρεια συμμεμυκότα, τὰ διελεῖν μέν ἐστι χαλεπά, καταφαγῆμεν δʼ εὐμαρέα· μύας ἀναρίτας τε κάρυκάς τε καὶ σκιφύδρια, τὰ γλυκέα μέν ἐντʼ ἐπέσθειν, ἐμπαγῆμεν δʼ ὀξέα, τούς τε μακρογογγύλους σωλῆνας· μέλαινά τε κόγχος, ἅπερ κογχοθηρᾶν παισίν ἐστʼ ἰσωνία· θάτεραι δὲ γάιαι κόγχοι τε κἀμαθίτιδες, ταὶ κακοδόκιμοι τε κἠύωνοι, τὰς ἀνδροφυκτίδας πάντες ἄνθρωποι καλέονθʼ, ἁμὲς δὲ λεύκας τοὶ θεοί.

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.
