οἱ δʼ ἀρχαῖοι ποιηταὶ τοὺς παρασίτους κόλακας ἐκάλουν, ἀφʼ ὧν καὶ Εὔπολις τῷ δράματι τὴν ἐπιγραφὴν ἐποιήσατο, τὸν χορὸν τῶν Κολάκων ποιήσας τάδε λέγοντα· ἀλλὰ δίαιταν ἣν ἔχουσʼ οἱ κόλακες πρὸς ὑμᾶς λέξομεν· ἀλλʼ ἀκούσαθʼ, ὡς ἐσμὲν ἅπαντα κομψοὶ ἄνδρες· ὅτοισι πρῶτα μὲν παῖς ἀκόλουθός ἐστιν ἀλλότριος τὰ πολλά, μικρὸν δέ τι κἀμὸς αὐτοῦ. ἱματίω δέ μοι δύʼ ἐστὸν χαρίεντε τούτω, οἷν μεταλαμβάνων ἀεὶ θάτερον ἐξελαύνω εἰς ἀγοράν. ἐκεῖ δʼ ἐπειδὰν κατίδω τινʼ ἄνδρα ἠλίθιον, πλουτοῦντα δʼ, εὐθὺς περὶ τοῦτον εἰμί. κἄν τι τύχῃ λέγων πλούταξ, πάνυ τοῦτʼ ἐπαινῶ καὶ καταπλήττομαι δοκῶν τοῖσι λόγοισι χαίρειν. εἶτʼ ἐπὶ δεῖπνον ἐρχόμεσθʼ ἄλλυδις ἄλλος ἡμῶν μᾶζαν ἐπʼ ἀλλόφυλον, οὗ δεῖ χαρίεντα πολλὰ τὸν κόλακʼ εὐθέως λέγειν ʼκφέρεται θύραζε. οἶδα δʼ Ἀκέστορʼ αὐτὸ τὸν στιγματίαν παθόντα· σκῶμμα γὰρ εἶπʼ ἀσελγές, εἶτʼ αὐτὸν παῖς θύραζε ἐξαγαγὼν ἔχοντα κλοιὸν παρέδωκεν Οἰνεῖ.

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.
