Paragraph
31

τοῦ δὲ ὀνόματος τοῦ παρασίτου μνημονεύει Ἀραρὼς ἐν Ὑμεναίῳ διὰ τούτων· οὐκ ἔσθʼ ὅπως οὐκ εἶ παράσιτος, φίλτατε· δʼ Ἰσχόμαχος ὁδὶ τρέφων σε τυγχάνει. πολὺ δʼ ἐστὶ τὸ ὄνομα παρὰ τοῖς νεωτέροις. τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα παρὰ Πλάτωνι τῷ φιλοσόφῳ ἐν Λάχητι· φησὶ γάρ· καὶ ἡμῖν τὰ μειράκια παρασιτεῖ. παρασίτων δʼ εἶναί φησι γένη δύο Ἄλεξις ἐν Κυβερνήτῃ διὰ τούτων· δύʼ ἐστί, Ναυσίνικε, παρασίτων γένη, ἓν μὲν τὸ κοινὸν καὶ κεκωμῳδημένον, οἱ μέλανες ἡμεῖς. θάτερον ζητῶ γένος, σεμνοπαράσιτον ἐκ μέσου καλούμενον, σατράπας παρασίτους καὶ στρατηγοὺς ἐπιφανεῖς ὑποκρινόμενον εὖ τοῖς βίοις, ὀφρῦς ἔχον χιλιοταλάντους ἀνακυλῖόν τʼ οὐσίας· νοεῖς σὺ τὸ γένος καὶ τὸ πρᾶγμα; Ν. καὶ μάλα. Α. τούτων δʼ ἑκατέρου τῶν γενῶν μὲν τύπος τῆς ἐργασίας εἷς ἐστι, κολακείας ἀγών· ὥσπερ ἐπὶ τῶν βίων δὲ τοὺς μὲν τύχη ἡμῶν μεγάλοις προσένειμε, τοὺς δʼ ἐλάττοσι εἶθʼ οἳ μὲν εὐποροῦμεν, οἳ δʼ ἀλύομεν. ἆρά γε διδάσκων, Ναυσίνικʼ; Ν. οὐκ ἀστόχως, ἀλλʼ ἄν σʼ ἐπαινῶ μᾶλλον, αἰτήσεις μέ τι.

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.
