Λυγκεὺς δʼ Σάμιος ἐν τῇ πρὸς Διαγόραν ἐπιστολῇ ἐπαινῶν τὰς Ῥοδιακὰς ἀφύας καὶ ἀντιτιθεὶς πολλὰ τῶν Ἀθήνησι γινομένων πρὸς τὰ ἐν τῇ Ῥόδῳ φησί· ταῖς μὲν Φαληρικαῖς ἀφύαις τὰς Αἰνάτιδας καλουμένας ἀφύας, τῷ δὲ γλαυκίσκῳ τὸν ἔλοπα καὶ τὸν ὄρφον ἀντιπαρατιθεῖσα, πρὸς δὲ τὰς Ἐλευσινιακὰς ψήττας καὶ σκόμβρους καὶ εἴ τις ἄλλος παρʼ αὐτοῖς ἰχθὺς ἐπάνω τῇ δόξῃ τοῦ Κέκροπος γέγονεν ἀντιγεννήσασα τὸν ἀλώπεκα καλούμενον. ὃν τὴν Ἡδυπάθειαν γράψας παρακελεύεται τῷ μὴ δυναμένῳ τιμῇ κατεργάσασθαι τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν ἀδικίᾳ κτήσασθαι τὴν ὀψοφαγίαν. Ἀρχέστρατον λέγει τὸν τένθην Λυγκεύς, ὃς ἐν τῷ πολυθρυλήτῳ ποιήματι περὶ τοῦ γαλεοῦ λέγει οὕτως· ἐν δὲ Ῥόδῳ γαλεὸν τὸν ἀλώπεκα· κἂν ἀποθνῄσκειν μέλλῃς, ἂν μή σοι πωλεῖν θέλῃ, ἅρπασον αὐτόν, ὃν καλέουσι Συρακόσιοι κύνα πίονα· κᾆτα ὕστερον ἤδη πάσχʼ ὅτι σοι πεπρωμένον ἐστίν.

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.
