Ἱππίας δʼ Ἐρυθραῖος ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ τῶν περὶ τῆς πατρίδος ἱστοριῶν διηγούμενος ὡς Κνωποῦ βασιλεία ὑπὸ τῶν ἐκείνου κολάκων κατελύθη φησὶν καὶ ταῦτα· Κνωπῷ μαντευομένῳ περὶ σωτηρίας θεὸς ἔχρησε θύειν Ἑρμῇ δολίῳ. καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ὁρμήσαντος αὐτοῦ εἰς Δελφοὺς οἱ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καταλῦσαι βουλόμενοι, ἵνʼ ὀλιγαρχίαν καταστήσωνται· (ἦσαν δʼ οὗτοι Ὀρτύγης καὶ Ἶρος καὶ Ἔχαρος, οἳ ἐκαλοῦντο διὰ τὸ περὶ τὰς θεραπείας εἶναι τῶν ἐπιφανῶν πρόκυνες καὶ κόλακες) συμπλέοντες οὖν τῷ Κνωπῷ, ὡς ἤδη πόρρω τῆς γῆς ἦσαν, δήσαντες τὸν Κνωπὸν ἔρριψαν εἰς τὸ πέλαγος καὶ καταχθέντες εἰς Χίον καὶ δύναμιν παρὰ τῶν ἐκεῖ τυράννων λαβόντες Ἀμφίκλου καὶ Πολυτέκνου νυκτὸς κατέπλευσαν εἰς τὰς Ἐρυθράς. κατὰ τὸ αὐτὸ καὶ τὸ τοῦ Κνωποῦ σῶμα ἐξεβράσθη τῆς Ἐρυθραίας κατὰ τὴν ἀκτὴν νῦν Λεόποδον καλεῖται. τῆς δὲ γυναικὸς τοῦ Κνωποῦ Κλεονίκης περὶ τὴν τοῦ σώματος κηδείαν γινομένης (ἦν δὲ ἑορτὴ καὶ πανήγυρις ἀγομένη Ἀρτέμιδι Στροφαίᾳ) ἐξαίφνης ἀκούεται σάλπιγγος βοή· καὶ καταληφθέντος τοῦ ἄστεος ὑπὸ τῶν περὶ τὸν Ὀρτύγην πολλοὶ μὲν ἀναιροῦνται τῶν τοῦ Κνωποῦ φίλων καὶ Κλεονίκη μαθοῦσα φεύγει εἰς Κολοφῶνα.

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.
