Paragraph
2

θαυμασάντων δὲ πάντων τὸ εὐπαίδευτον τοῦ Κυνούλκου Πλούταρχος κατὰ τὸ ὅμοιον, ἔφη, καὶ ἐν Ἀλεξανδρείᾳ τῇ ἐμῇ Λαγυνοφόρια ἑορτή τις ἤγετο, περὶ ἧς ἱστορεῖ Ἐρατοσθένης ἐν τῷ ἐπιγραφομένῳ συγγράμματι Ἀρσινόη. λέγει δὲ οὕτως· τοῦ Πτολεμαίου κτίζοντος ἑορτῶν καὶ θυσιῶν παντοδαπῶν γένη καὶ μάλιστα περὶ τὸν Διόνυσον, ἠρώτησεν Ἀρσινόη τὸν φέροντα τοὺς θαλλοὺς τίνα νῦν ἡμέραν ἄγει καὶ τίς ἐστὶν ἑορτή. τοῦ δʼ εἰπόντος καλεῖται μὲν Λαγυνοφόρια, καὶ τὰ κομισθέντα αὑτοῖς δειπνοῦσι κατακλιθέντες ἐπὶ στιβάδων καὶ ἐξ ἰδίας ἕκαστος λαγύνου παρʼ αὑτῶν φέροντες πίνουσιν· ὡς δʼ οὗτος ἀπεχώρησεν, ἐμβλέψασα πρὸς ἡμᾶς συνοίκιά γʼ, ἔφη, ταῦτα ῥυπαρά. ἀνάγκη γὰρ τὴν σύνοδον γίνεσθαι παμμιγοῦς ὄχλου, θοίνην ἕωλον καὶ οὐδαμῶς εὐπρεπῆ παρατιθεμένων. εἰ δὲ τὸ γένος τῆς ἑορτῆς ἤρεσκεν, οὐκ ἂν ἐκοπίασε δήπου τὰ αὐτὰ ταῦτα παρασκευάζουσα βασίλεια καθάπερ ἐν τοῖς Χουσίν· εὐωχοῦνται μὲν γὰρ κατʼ ἰδίαν, παρέχει δὲ ταῦτα καλέσας ἐπὶ τὴν ἑστίασιν.

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.
