περὶ δὲ τοῦ Ἐπικούρου Τίμων ἐν γʹ σίλλων φησί· γαστρὶ χαριζόμενος, τῆς οὐ λαμυρώτερον οὐδέν. ταύτης γὰρ ἕνεκεν ἀνὴρ καὶ τῆς ἄλλης τῆς κατὰ σάρκα ἡδονῆς ἐκολάκευεν καὶ Ἰδομενέα καὶ Μητρόδωρον. καὶ αὐτὸς δέ που Μητρόδωρος οὐκ ἀποκρυπτόμενος τὰς καλὰς ταύτας θέσεις φησίν· περὶ γαστέρα γάρ, φυσιολόγε Τιμόκρατες, περὶ γαστέρα κατὰ φύσιν βαδίζων λόγος τὴν ἅπασαν ἔχει σπουδήν. Ἐπίκουρος γὰρ ἦν τούτων διδάσκαλος, ὃς καὶ βοῶν ἔλεγεν· ἀρχὴ καὶ ῥίζα παντὸς ἀγαθοῦ τῆς γαστρὸς ἡδονή, καὶ τὰ σοφὰ καὶ τὰ περιττὰ εἰς ταύτην ἔχει τὴν ἀναφοράν. κἀν τῷ περὶ τέλους δέ φησιν οὕτω πως· οὐ γὰρ ἔγωγε δύναμαι νοῆσαι τἀγαθὸν ἀφαιρῶν μὲν τὰς διὰ χυλῶν ἡδονάς, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ τὰς διʼ ἀφροδισίων, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ τὰς διʼ ἀκροαμάτων, ἀφαιρῶν δὲ τὰς διὰ μορφῆς κατʼ ὄψιν ἡδείας κινήσεις. καὶ προελθών (φησι) λέγει· τιμητέον τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὰς ἀρετὰς καὶ τὰ τοιουτότροπα, ἐὰν ἡδονὴν παρασκευάζῃ· ἐὰν δὲ μὴ παρασκευάζῃ, χαίρειν ἐατέον.

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.
