Book 6


Ἀθηναῖοι δὲ καὶ τῆς τῶν δούλων προνοοῦντες τύχης ἐνομοθέτησαν καὶ ὑπὲρ δούλων γραφὰς ὕβρεως εἶναι. Ὑπερείδης γοῦν ῥήτωρ ἐν τῷ κατὰ Μαντιθέου αἰκίας φησίν· ἔθεσαν οὐ μόνον ὑπὲρ τῶν ἐλευθέρων, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐάν τις εἰς δούλου σῶμα ὑβρίσῃ γραφὰς εἶναι κατὰ τοῦ ὑβρίσαντος. τὰ ὅμοια εἴρηκε καὶ Λυκοῦργος ἐν τῷ κατὰ Λυκόφρονος πρώτῳ καὶ Δημοσθένης ἐν τῷ κατὰ Μειδίου Μάλακος δʼ ἐν τοῖς Σιφνίων ὥροις ἱστορεῖ, ὡς τὴν Ἔφεσον δοῦλοι τῶν Σαμίων ᾤκισαν χίλιοι τὸν ἀριθμὸν ὄντες, οἳ καὶ τὸ πρῶτον ἀποστάντες εἰς τὸ ἐν τῇ νήσῳ ὄρος κακὰ πολλὰ ἐποίουν τοὺς Σαμίους· ἔτει δὲ ἕκτῳ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐκ μαντείας οἱ Σάμιοι ἐσπείσαντο τοῖς οἰκέταις ἐπὶ συνθήκαις, καὶ ἀθῷοι ἐξελθόντες τῆς νήσου ἐκπλεύσαντες κατέσχον τὴν Ἔφεσον· καὶ οἱ Ἐφέσιοι ἐκ τούτων ἐγένοντο.

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.
