Book 6


τῶν δὲ Γαλατῶν οἱ Σκορδίσται καλούμενοι χρυσὸν μὲν οὐκ εἰσάγουσιν εἰς τὴν αὑτῶν χώραν, λῃζόμενοι δὲ τὴν ἀλλοτρίαν καὶ ἀδικοῦντες τὸν ἄργυρον οὐ παραλείπουσι. τὸ δʼ ἔθνος αὐτῶν ἐστι μὲν λείψανον τῶν μετὰ Βρέννου στρατευσαμένων ἐπὶ τὸ Δελφικὸν μαντεῖον Γαλατῶν, Βαθάναττος δέ τις ἡγεμὼν αὐτοὺς διῴκισεν ἐπὶ τοὺς περὶ τὸν Ἴστρον τόπους .... ἀφʼ ἧς καὶ τὴν ὁδὸν διʼ ἧς ἐνόστησαν Βαθαναττίαν καλοῦσι καὶ τοὺς ἀπογόνους τοὺς ἐκείνου Βαθανάττους ἔτι καὶ νῦν προσαγορεύουσιν. ἀφωσιώκασι δὲ οὗτοι τὸν χρυσὸν καὶ οὐκ εἰσφέρουσιν εἰς τὰς πατρίδας, διʼ ὃν πολλὰ καὶ δεινὰ ἔπαθον· ἀργύρῳ δὲ χρῶνται καὶ τούτου χάριν πολλὰ καὶ δεινὰ ποιοῦσιν. καίτοι γε ἐχρῆν οὐχὶ τὸ γένος τοῦ συληθέντος, ἀλλὰ τὴν ἱεροσυλήσασαν ἀσέβειαν ἐξορίσαι· εἰ δὲ μηδὲ τὸν ἄργυρον εἰσέφερον εἰς τὴν χώραν, περὶ τὸν χαλκὸν ἂν καὶ σίδηρον ἐπλημμέλουν εἰ μηδὲ ταῦτʼ ἦν παρʼ αὐτοῖς, περὶ τῶν βρωτῶν καὶ ποτῶν καὶ τῶν ἄλλων ἀναγκαίων ὁπλομανοῦντες ἂν διετέλουν.

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.
