Paragraph
63

μὲν οὖν Δημοχάρης τοσαῦτα εἴρηκε περὶ τῆς Ἀθηναίων κολακείας· Δοῦρις δʼ Σάμιος ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ καὶ εἰκοστῇ τῶν ἱστοριῶν καὶ αὐτὸν τὸν ἰθύφαλλον ..... ὡς οἱ μέγιστοι τῶν θεῶν καὶ φίλτατοι τῇ πόλει πάρεισιν· ἐνταῦθα γὰρ Δήμητρα καὶ Δημήτριον ἅμα παρῆγʼ καιρός. χἠ μὲν τὰ σεμνὰ τῆς Κόρης μυστήρια ἔρχεθʼ ἵνα ποιήσῃ, δʼ ἱλαρός, ὥσπερ τὸν θεὸν δεῖ, καὶ καλὸς καὶ γελῶν πάρεστι. σεμνόν τι φαίνεθʼ, οἱ φίλοι πάντες κύκλῳ, ἐν μέσοισι δʼ αὐτός, ὅμοιος ὥσπερ οἱ φίλοι μὲν ἀστέρες, ἥλιος δʼ ἐκεῖνος. τοῦ κρατίστου παῖ Ποσειδῶνος θεοῦ, χαῖρε, κἀφροδίτης. ἄλλοι μὲν μακρὰν γὰρ ἀπέχουσιν θεοὶ οὐκ ἔχουσιν ὦτα οὐκ εἰσὶν οὐ προσέχουσιν ἡμῖν οὐδὲ ἕν, σὲ δὲ παρόνθʼ ὁρῶμεν, οὐ ξύλινον οὐδὲ λίθινον, ἀλλʼ ἀληθινόν. εὐχόμεσθα δή σοι· πρῶτον μὲν εἰρήνην ποίησον, φίλτατε· κύριος γὰρ εἶ σύ. τὴν δʼ οὐχὶ Θηβῶν, ἀλλʼ ὅλης τῆς Ἑλλάδος Σφίγγα περικρατοῦσαν, Αἰτωλὸς ὅστις ἐπὶ πέτρας καθήμενος, ὥσπερ παλαιά, τὰ σώμαθʼ ἡμῶν πάντʼ ἀναρπάσας φέρει, κοὐκ ἔχω μάχεσθαι· Αἰτωλικὸν γὰρ ἁρπάσαι τὰ τῶν πέλας, νῦν δὲ καὶ τὰ πόρρω· μάλιστα μὲν δὴ σχόλασον αὐτός· εἰ δὲ μή, Οἰδίπουν τινʼ εὑρέ, τὴν Σφίγγα ταύτην ὅστις κατακρημνιεῖ σποδὸν ποιήσει.

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.
