Book 7


Ἀντίγονος δʼ Καρύστιος ἐν τῷ περὶ λέξεως τῷ Ποσειδῶνί φησι θύννον θύεσθαι, καθάπερ προείπαμεν Ἡρακλέων δʼ Ἐφέσιος θύννον τὸν ὄρκυνόν φησι λέγειν τοὺς Ἀττικούς. Σώστρατος δʼ ἐν δευτέρῳ περὶ ζῴων τὴν πηλαμύδα θυννίδα καλεῖσθαι λέγει, μείζω δὲ γινομένην θύννον, ἔτι δὲ μείζονα ὄρκυνον, ὑπερβαλλόντως δὲ αὐξανόμενον γίνεσθαι κῆτος. μνημονεύει δὲ τοῦ θύννου καὶ Αἰσχύλος λέγων· σφύρας δέχεσθαι κἀπιχαλκεύειν μύδρους ὡς ἀστενακτὶ θύννος ὣς ἠνείχετο ἄναυδος. καὶ ἀλλαχοῦ· τὸ σκαιὸν ὄμμα παραβαλὼν θύννου δίκην, ὡς τοῦ θύννου τῷ σκαιῷ ὀφθαλμῷ οὐ βλέποντος, ὡς Ἀριστοτέλης εἴρηκεν Μένανδρος Ἁλιεῦσι· καὶ θάλασσα βορβορώδης, τρέφει θύννον μέγαν. καὶ παρὰ Σώφρονι θυννοθήρας ἐστίν οὓς ἔνιοι θύννους καλοῦσιν, Ἀθηναῖοι δὲ θυννίδας.

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.
