Book 6

Paragraph
72

εἴη οὖν ἂν τοῦ προειρημένου μειρακίου κόλαξ μαλακοκόλαξ, ὥς φησιν Κλέαρχος· πρὸς γὰρ τῷ τοιούτῳ κολακεύειν καὶ τὸ σχῆμα τῶν κολακευομένων ἐπακολουθῶν ἀποπλάττεται παραγκωνίζων καὶ σπαργανῶν ἑαυτὸν τοῖς τριβωναρίοις. ὅθεν αὐτὸν οἳ μὲν παραγκωνιστήν, οἳ δὲ σχηματοθήκην καλοῦσι. κατʼ ἀλήθειαν γὰρ κόλαξ ἔοικεν εἶναι τῷ Πρωτεῖ αὐτός. γίγνεται γοῦν παντοδαπὸς οὐ μόνον κατὰ τὴν μορφήν, ἀλλὰ καὶ κατὰ τοὺς λόγους· οὕτω ποικιλόφωνός τις ἐστίν. Ἀνδροκύδης δʼ ἰατρὸς ἔλεγε τὴν κολακείαν ἔχειν τὴν ἐπωνυμίαν ἀπὸ τοῦ προσκολλᾶσθαι ταῖς ὁμιλίαις· ἐμοὶ δὲ δοκεῖ διὰ τὴν εὐχέρειαν ὅτι πάντα ὑποδύεται, ὡς δή τις ὑποστατικὸς νωταγωγῶν τῷ τῆς ψυχῆς ἤθει καὶ οὐ βαρυνόμενος οὐδενὶ τῶν αἰσχρῶν. οὐκ ἂν διαμάρτοι δέ τις τὸν τοῦ μειρακίου τούτου τοῦ Κυπρίου βίον ὑγρὸν ὀνομάζων· οὗ πολλοὺς καὶ διδασκάλους φησὶν εἶναι Ἀθήνησιν Ἄλεξις ἐν Πυραύνῳ λέγων οὕτως· πεῖραν ἐπεθύμουν θατέρου βίου λαβεῖν, ὃν πάντες εἰώθασιν ὀνομάζειν ὑγρόν. τρεῖς ἐν Κεραμεικῷ περιπατήσας ἡμέρας διδασκάλους ἐξεῦρον οὗ λέγω βίου ἴσως τριάκοντʼ ἀφʼ ἑνὸς ἐργαστηρίου. καὶ Κρώβυλος ἐν Ἀπολιπούσῃ· πάλιν τοῦ βίου ὑγρότης μέ τοῦ σου τέθλιφε· τὴν ἀσωτίαν ὑγρότητα γὰρ νῦν προσαγορεύουσίν τινες.

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.
