ΙΠΠΟΥΡΟΙ. Ἀριστοτέλης ἐν δευτέρῳ ζῴων μορίων τοὺς ἱππούρους φησὶν ᾠὰ τίκτειν, καὶ ταῦτα ἐξ ἐλαχίστων μέγιστα γίνεσθαι, ὡς καὶ τὰ τῆς σμυραίνης· τίκτειν δὲ ἔαρος. Δωρίων δʼ ἐν τῷ περὶ ἰχθύων κορύφαιναν καλεῖσθαί φησι τὸν ἵππουρον. Ἱκέσιος δʼ ἱππουρεῖς αὐτοὺς προσαγορεύει. μνημονεύει δʼ αὐτῶν Ἐπίχαρμος ἐν Ἥβας γάμῳ· κὠξύρυγχοι ῥαφίδες ἵππουροί τε καὶ χρυσόφρυες. Νουμήνιος δʼ ἐν Ἁλιευτικῷ τὴν φύσιν τοῦ ἰχθύος διηγούμενος συνεχές φησιν αὐτὸν ἐξάλλεσθαι, διὸ καὶ ἀρνευτὴν ὀνομάζεσθαι. λέγει δὲ οὕτω περὶ αὐτοῦ· ἠὲ μέγαν συνόδοντα ἀρνευτὴν ἵππουρον. Ἀρχέστρατος δέ φησιν· ἵππουρος δὲ Καρύστιός ἐστιν ἄριστος· ἄλλως τʼ εὔοψον σφόδρα χωρίον ἐστὶ Κάρυστος. Ἐπαίνετος δʼ ἐν Ὀψαρτυτικοῖς κορύφαιναν αὐτόν φησιν ὀνομάζεσθαι.

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.
