Paragraph

διαβόητος δὲ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ κολακείᾳ καὶ τῶν Ἀθηναίων δῆμος. Δημοχάρης γοῦν Δημοσθένους τοῦ ῥήτορος ἀνεψιὸς ἐν τῇ εἰκοστῇ τῶν ἱστοριῶν διηγούμενος περὶ ἧς ἐποιοῦντο οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι κολακείας πρὸς τὸν Πολιορκητὴν Δημήτριον καὶ ὅτι τοῦτʼ οὐκ ἦν ἐκείνῳ βουλομένῳ, γράφει οὕτως· ἐλύπει μὲν καὶ τούτων ἔνια αὐτόν, ὡς ἔοικεν, οὐ μὴν ἀλλὰ καὶ ἄλλα γε παντελῶς αἰσχρὰ καὶ ταπεινά, Λεαίνης μὲν καὶ Λαμίας Ἀφροδίτης ἱερὰ καὶ Βουρίχου καὶ Ἀδειμάντου καὶ Ὀξυθέμιδος τῶν κολάκων αὐτοῦ καὶ βωμοὶ καὶ ἡρῷα καὶ σπονδαί. τούτων ἑκάστῳ καὶ παιᾶνες ᾔδοντο, ὥστε καὶ αὐτὸν τὸν Δημήτριον θαυμάζειν ἐπὶ τοῖς γινομένοις καὶ λέγειν ὅτι ἐπʼ αὐτοῦ οὐδεὶς Ἀθηναίων γέγονε μέγας καὶ ἁδρὸς τὴν ψυχήν. καὶ Θηβαῖοι δὲ κολακεύοντες τὸν Δημήτριον, ὥς φησι Πολέμων ἐν τῷ περὶ τῆς ποικίλης στοᾶς τῆς ἐν Σικυῶνι, ἱδρύσαντο ναὸν Ἀφροδίτης Λαμίας. ἐρωμένη δʼ ἦν αὕτη τοῦ Δημητρίου καθάπερ καὶ Λέαινα. τί οὖν παράδοξον οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι οἱ τῶν κολάκων κόλακες ἐποίησαν οἱ εἰς αὐτὸν τὸν Δημήτριον παιᾶνας καὶ προσόδια ᾄδοντες; φησὶ γοῦν Δημοχάρης ἐν τῇ πρώτῃ καὶ εἰκοστῇ γράφων· ἐπανελθόντα δὲ τὸν Δημήτριον ἀπὸ τῆς Λευκάδος καὶ Κερκύρας εἰς τὰς Ἀθήνας οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι ἐδέχοντο οὐ μόνον θυμιῶντες καὶ στεφανοῦντες καὶ οἰνοχοοῦντες, ἀλλὰ καὶ προσοδιακοὶ χοροὶ καὶ ἰθύφαλλοι μετʼ ὀρχήσεως καὶ ᾠδῆς ἀπήντων αὐτῷ καὶ ἐφιστάμενοι κατὰ τοὺς ὄχλους ᾖδον ὀρχούμενοι καὶ ἐπᾴδοντες ὡς εἴη μόνος θεὸς ἀληθινός, οἱ δʼ ἄλλοι καθεύδουσιν ἀποδημοῦσιν οὐκ εἰσίν, γεγονὼς δʼ εἴη ἐκ Ποσειδῶνος καὶ Ἀφροδίτης, τῷ δὲ κάλλει διάφορος καὶ τῇ πρὸς πάντας φιλανθρωπίᾳ κοινός. δεόμενοι δʼ αὐτοῦ ἱκέτευον, φησί, καὶ προσηύχοντο.

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.
