Paragraph
34

Μενεκράτης Ζεὺς Φιλίππῳ χαίρειν. σὺ μὲν Μακεδονίας βασιλεύεις, ἐγὼ δὲ ἰατρικῆς, καὶ σὺ μὲν ὑγιαίνοντας δύνασαι ὅταν βουληθῇς ἀπολλύναι, ἐγὼ δὲ τοὺς νοσοῦντας σῴζειν καὶ τοὺς εὐρώστους ἀνόσους οἳ ἂν ἐμοὶ πείθωνται παρέχειν μέχρι γήρως ζῶντας. τοιγαροῦν σὲ μὲν Μακεδόνες δορυφοροῦσιν, ἐμὲ δὲ καὶ οἱ μέλλοντες ἔσεσθαι. Ζεὺς γὰρ ἐγὼ αὐτοῖς βίον παρέχω. πρὸς ὃν ὡς μελαγχολῶντα ἐπέστελλεν Φίλιππος· Φίλιππος Μενεκράτει ὑγιαίνειν. παραπλησίως δὲ ἐπέστελλε καὶ Ἀρχιδάμῳ τῷ Λακεδαιμονίων βασιλεῖ καὶ τοῖς ἄλλοις ὅσοις ἔγραφεν, οὐκ ἀπεχόμενος τοῦ Διός. καλέσας δʼ αὐτόν ποτε ἐπὶ δεῖπνον Φίλιππος μετὰ τῶν ἰδίων θεῶν συγκατέκλινε πάντας ἐπὶ τῆς μέσης κλίνης ὑψηλότατα καὶ ἱεροπρεπέστατα κεκοσμημένης καὶ τράπεζαν παραθείς, ἐφʼ ἧς βωμὸς ἔκειτο καὶ τῶν ἀπὸ γῆς παντοδαπῶν ἀπαρχαί. καὶ ὁπότε τοῖς ἄλλοις παρεφέρετο τὰ ἐδώδιμα, τοῖς ἀμφὶ Μενεκράτην ἐθυμίων καὶ ἔσπενδον οἱ παῖδες. καὶ τέλος καινὸς Ζεὺς μετὰ τῶν ὑπηκόων γελώμενος θεῶν ἔφυγεν ἐκ τοῦ συμποσίου, ὡς Ἡγήσανδρος ἱστορεῖ· μνημονεύει δὲ τοῦ Μενεκράτους καὶ Ἄλεξις ἐν Μίνῳ

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.
