ΓΑΛΕΟΙ. Ἱκέσιος ἐν τοῖς περὶ ὕλης τῶν γαλεῶν βελτίονας εἶναι καὶ ἁπαλωτέρους τοὺς ἀστερίας καλουμένους. Ἀριστοτέλης δὲ εἴδη αὐτῶν φησιν εἶναι πλείω, ἀκανθίαν, λεῖον, ποικίλον, σκύμνον, ἀλωπεκίαν, ῥίνην. Δωρίων δʼ ἐν τῷ περὶ ἰχθύων τὸν ἀλωπεκίαν μίαν ἔχειν φησὶ λοφιὰν πρὸς τῷ οὐραίῳ, ἐπὶ δὲ τῆς ῥάχεως οὐδαμῶς. δʼ Ἀριστοτέλης ἐν πέμπτῳ ζῴων μορίων καὶ κεντρίνην φησί τινα γαλεὸν εἶναι καὶ νωτιδανόν. Ἐπαίνετος δʼ ἐν Ὀψαρτυτικῷ ἐπινωτιδέα καλεῖ, χείρονα δʼ εἶναι τὸν κεντρίνην καὶ δυσώδη. γνωρίζεσθαι δʼ ἐκ τοῦ πρὸς τῇ πρώτῃ λοφιᾷ ἔχειν κέντρον τῶν ὁμοειδῶν οὐκ ἐχόντων· οὔτε δὲ στέαρ οὔτε πιμελὴν ἔχειν τοὺς ἰχθῦς τούτους διὰ τὸ χονδρώδεις εἶναι. ἰδίως δὲ ἀκανθίας τὴν καρδίαν ἔχει πεντάγωνον. τίκτει δʼ γαλεὸς τὰ πλεῖστα τρία καὶ εἰσδέχεται τὰ γεννηθέντα εἰς τὸ στόμα καὶ πάλιν ἀφίησιν· μάλιστα δʼ ποικίλος καὶ ἀλωπεκίας. οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ οὐκ ἔτι διὰ τὴν τραχύτητα.

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.
