G. Kaibel: Athenaei Naucratitae Dipnosophistarum libri 15

Book 6


ἐπεὶ δὲ καὶ τοῦτʼ ἐστι τῶν ὑπὸ τοῦ Οὐλπιανοῦ προβεβλημένων, καὶ τὸ περὶ τοὺς οἰκέτας, φέρε εἴπωμέν τι καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀναπεμπασάμενοι περὶ αὐτῶν ἐξ ὧν πάλαι τυγχάνομεν ἀνεγνωκότες. Φερεκράτης μὲν γὰρ ἐν Ἀγρίοις φησίν· οὐ γὰρ ἦν τότʼ οὔτε Μάνης οὔτε Σηκὶς οὐδενὶ δοῦλος, ἀλλʼ αὐτὰς ἔδει μοχθεῖν ἅπαντʼ ἐν οἰκίᾳ. εἶτα πρὸς τούτοισιν ἤλουν ὄρθριαι τὰ σιτία, ὥστε τὴν κώμην ὑπηχεῖν θιγγανουσῶν τὰς μύλας. καὶ Ἀναξανδρίδης δὲ ἐν Ἀγχίσῃ φησίν· οὐκ ἔστι δούλων, ὦγάθʼ, οὐδαμοῦ πόλις, τύχη δὲ πάντῃ μεταφέρει τὰ σώματα. πολλοὶ δὲ νῦν μέν εἰσιν οὐκ ἐλεύθεροι, εἰς αὔριον δὲ Σουνιεῖς, εἶτʼ εἰς τρίτην ἀγορᾷ κέχρηνται. τὸν γὰρ οἴακα στρέφει δαίμων ἑκάστῳ.

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.
