Ἀπολλώνιος δʼ Ῥόδιος Ναυκρατίτης ἐν Ναυκράτεως κτίσει τὸν Πομπίλον φησὶν ἄνθρωπον πρότερον ὄντα μεταβαλεῖν εἰς ἰχθὺν διά τινα Ἀπόλλωνος ἔρωτα· τὴν γὰρ Σαμίων πόλιν παραρρεῖν ποταμὸν Ἴμβρασον, τῷ ῥά ποτʼ Ὠκυρόην νύμφην, περικαλλέα κούρην, Χησιὰς εὐπατέρεια τέκεν φιλότητι μιγεῖσα, Ὠκυρόην, κάλλος ἀπείριτον ὤπασαν Ὧραι· ταύτης οὖν ἐρασθέντα Ἀπόλλωνα ἐπιχειρῆσαι ἁρπάσαι. διαπεραιωθεῖσαν δʼ εἰς Μίλητον κατά τινα Ἀρτέμιδος ἑορτὴν καὶ μέλλουσαν ἁρπάζεσθαι εὐλαβηθεῖσαν Πομπίλον τινὰ θαλασσουργὸν ἄνθρωπον καθικετεῦσαι ὄντα πατρῷον φίλον, ὅπως αὐτὴν εἰς τὴν πατρίδα διασώσῃ, λέγουσαν τάδε· πατρὸς ἐμοῖο φίλου συμφράδμονα θυμὸν ἀέξων, Πομπίλε, δυσκελάδου δεδαὼς θοὰ βένθεα πόντου, σῷζέ με· καὶ τὸν εἰς τὴν ἀκτὴν διαγαγόντα αὐτὴν διαπεραιοῦν. ἐπιφανέντα δὲ τὸν Ἀπόλλωνα τήν τε κόρην ἁρπάσαι καὶ τὴν ναῦν ἀπολιθώσαντα τὸν Πομπίλον εἰς τὸν ὁμώνυμον ἰχθὺν μεταμορφῶσαι ποιῆσαί τε τὸν πομπίλον ὠκυάλων νηῶν αιηονονα δουρον.

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.
