τὸν δὲ νῦν λεγόμενον παράσιτον Καρύστιος Περγαμηνὸς ἐν τῷ περὶ διδασκαλιῶν εὑρεθῆναί φησιν ὑπὸ πρώτου Ἀλέξιδος, ἐκλαθόμενος ὅτι Ἐπίχαρμος ἐν Ἐλπίδι Πλούτῳ παρὰ πότον αὐτὸν εἰσήγαγεν οὑτωσὶ λέγων· ἀλλʼ ἄλλος ἔστειχʼ ὧδε τοῦδε κατὰ πόδας, τὸν ῥᾳδίως λαψῇ τυ καιτοίνυν γαθην εὔωνον ἀείσιτον. Β. ἀλλʼ ἔμπας ὅδε ἄμυστιν ὥσπερ κύλικα πίνει τὸν βίον. καὶ αὐτὸν ποιεῖ τὸν παράσιτον λέγοντα τοιάδε πρὸς τὸν πυνθανόμενον· συνδειπνέων τῷ λῶντι, καλέσαι δεῖ μόνον, καὶ τῷ γα μὴ λιῶντι, κωὐδὲν δεῖ καλεῖν· τηνεὶ δὲ χαρίης τʼ εἰμὶ καὶ ποιέω πολὺν γέλωτα καὶ τὸν ἱστιῶντʼ ἐπαινέω. καἴ κά τις ἀντίον λίῃ τήνῳ λέγειν, τήνῳ κυδάζομαί τε κἀπʼ ὦν ἠχθόμαν. κἤπειτα πολλὰ καταφαγών, πόλλʼ ἐμπιὼν ἄπειμι· λύχνον δʼ οὐχ παῖς μοι συμφέρει· ἕρπω δʼ ὀλισθράζων τε καὶ κατὰ σκότος ἔρημος· αἴ κα δʼ ἐντύχω τοῖς περιπόλοις, τοῦθʼ οἷον ἀγαθὸν ἐπιλέγω τοῖς θεοῖς ὅτι οὐ λῶντι πλεῖον, ἀλλὰ μαστιγῶντί με. ἐπεὶ δέ χʼ εἵκω οἴκαδις καταφθαρείς, ἄστρωτος εὕδω· καὶ τὰ μὲν πρῶτʼ οὐ κοῶ, ἇς κά μʼ ἄκρατος οἶνος ἀμφέπῃ φρένας.

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.
