Book 4

Paragraph
10

ἐχρῶντο γὰρ οἱ παλαιοὶ καὶ τοῖς εἰς ἀναστόμωσιν βρώμασιν ὥσπερ ταῖς ἁλμάσιν ἐλάαις, ἃς κολυμβάδας καλοῦσιν. Ἀριστοφάνης γοῦν ἐν Γήρᾳ φησίν· πρεσβῦτα, πότερα φιλεῖς τὰς δρυπεπεῖς ἑταίρας σὺ τὰς ὑποπαρθένους ἁλμάδας ὡς ἐλάας στιφράς; Φιλήμων δʼ ἐν Μετιόντι Ζωμίῳ· ἰχθὺς τί σοι ἐφαίνεθʼ οὑφθός; Β. μικρὸς ἦν, ἀκήκοας; ἅλμη τε λευκὴ καὶ παχεῖʼ ὑπερβολῇ, κοὐχὶ λοπάδος προσῶζεν οὐδʼ ἡδυσμάτων. ἐβόων δʼ ἅπαντες, ὡς ἀγαθὴν ἅλμην ποιεῖς. ἤσθιον δὲ καὶ τέττιγας καὶ κερκώπας ἀναστομώσεως χάριν. Ἀριστοφάνης Ἀναγύρῳ· πρὸς θεῶν, ἔραμαι τέττιγα φαγεῖν καὶ κερκώπην θηρευσαμένη καλάμῳ λεπτῷ. ἐστὶν δʼ κερκώπη ζῷον ὅμοιον τέττιγι καὶ τιτιγονίῳ, ὡς Σπεύσιππος παρίστησιν ἐν δʹ Ὁμοίων. μνημονεύει αὐτῶν Ἐπίλυκος ἐν Κωραλίσκῳ Ἄλεξις ἐν Θράσωνί φησι· σοῦ δʼ ἐγὼ λαλιστέραν οὐπώποτʼ εἶδον οὔτε κερκώπην, γύναι, οὐ κίτταν, οὐκ ἀηδόνʼ, οὐ χελιδόνα, οὐ τρυγόνʼ, οὐ τέττιγα. Νικόστρατος δʼ ἐν Ἅβρᾳ· πίναξ πρῶτος τῶν μεγάλων ἡγήσεται ἔχων ἐχῖνον, ὠμοτάριχον, κάππαριν, θρυμματίδα, τέμαχος, βολβὸν ἐν ὑποτρίμματι.

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.
