Book 6


κἀν τοῖς Πέρσαις δέ φησιν· τίς δʼ ἔσθʼ ἡμῖν τῶν σῶν ἀροτῶν ζυγοποιῶν ἔτι χρεία δρεπανουργῶν χαλκοτύπων σπέρματος χαρακισμοῦ; αὐτόματοι γὰρ διὰ τῶν τριόδων ποταμοὶ λιπαροῖς ἐπιπάστοις ζωμοῦ μέλανος καὶ Ἀχιλλείοις μάζαις κοχυδοῦντες ἐπιβλὺξ ἀπὸ τῶν πηγῶν τῶν τοῦ Πλούτου ῥεύσονται, σφῶν ἀρύτεσθαι. Ζεὺς δʼ ὕων οἴνῳ καπνίᾳ κατὰ τοῦ κεράμου βαλανεύσει, ἀπὸ τῶν δὲ τεγῶν ὀχετοὶ βοτρύων μετὰ ναστίσκων πολυτύρων ὀχετεύσονται θερμῷ σὺν ἔτνει καὶ λειριοπολφανεμώναις. τὰ δὲ δὴ δένδρη τἀν τοῖς ὄρεσιν χορδαῖς ὀπταῖς ἐριφείοις φυλλοροήσει καὶ τευθιδίοις ἁπαλοῖσι κίχλαις τʼ ἀναβράστοις.

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.
