Paragraph

καὶ Κτήσιππος δʼ Χαβρίου υἱὸς εἰς τοσοῦτον ἦλθεν ἀσωτίας ὡς καὶ τοῦ μνήματος τοῦ πατρός, εἰς Ἀθηναῖοι χιλίας ἀνάλωσαν δραχμάς, τοὺς λίθους πωλῆσαι εἰς τὰς ἡδυπαθείας. Δίφιλος γοῦν ἐν τοῖς Ἐναγίζουσί φησι· εἰ μὴ συνήθης Φαιδίμῳ γʼ ἐτύγχανεν Χαβρίου Κτήσιππος, εἰσηγησάμην νόμον ἄν τινʼ οὐκ ἄχρηστον, ὡς ἐμοὶ δοκεῖ, ὥστʼ ἐπιτελεσθῆναί ποτʼ αὐτῷ τοῦ πατρὸς τὸ μνῆμα, κατʼ ἐνιαυτὸν ἕνα ... λίθον ἁμαξιαῖον. καὶ σφόδρʼ εὐτελὲς λέγω. Τιμοκλῆς δʼ ἐν Δημοσατύροις φησίν· οὐδʼ Χαβρίου Κτήσιππος ἔτι τρὶς κείρεται, ἐν ταῖς γυναιξὶ λαμπρός, οὐκ ἐν ἀνδράσιν. καὶ Μένανδρος δʼ ἐν Ὀργῇ περὶ αὐτοῦ τάδε λέγει· καίτοι νέος ποτʼ ἐγενόμην κἀγώ, γύναι· ἀλλʼ οὐκ ἐλούμην πεντάκις τῆς ἡμέρας τότʼ, ἀλλὰ νῦν· οὐδὲ χλανίδʼ εἶχον, ἀλλὰ νῦν· οὐδὲ μύρον εἶχον, ἀλλὰ νῦν· καὶ βάψομαι καὶ παρατιλοῦμαι νὴ Δία καὶ γενήσομαι Κτήσιππος, οὐκ ἄνθρωπος, ἐν ὀλίγῳ χρόνῳ, κᾆθʼ ὡς ἐκεῖνος κατέδομαι καὶ τοὺς λίθους ἁπαξάπαντας, οὐ γὰρ οὖν τὴν γῆν μόνην. τάχʼ οὖν διὰ τὴν πολλὴν ταύτην ἀσωτίαν καὶ κιναιδίαν τοὔνομα αὐτοῦ παρέλιπε Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ περὶ ἀτελειῶν χρὴ δὲ τοὺς τὰ πατρῷα κατεδηδοκότας κατὰ τὸν Μενάνδρου Ναύκληρον οὕτως κολάζεσθαι. φησὶν γάρ· φιλτάτη Γῆ μῆτερ, ὡς σεμνὸν σφόδρʼ εἶ τοῖς νοῦν ἔχουσι κτῆμα πολλοῦ τʼ ἄξιον. ὡς δῆτʼ ἐχρῆν εἴ τις πατρῴαν παραλαβὼν γῆν καταφάγοι, πλεῖν τοῦτον ἤδη διὰ τέλους καὶ μηδʼ ἐπιβαίνειν γῆς, ἵνʼ οὕτως ᾔσθετο οἷον παραλαβὼν ἀγαθὸν οὐκ ἐφείσατο.

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.
