ΚΑΠΡΟΣ καὶ ΚΡΕΜΥΣ. Ἀριστοτέλης ἐν τῷ περὶ ζῴων φησί· τὰ δὲ ἀνόδοντα καὶ λεῖα ὡς ῥαφίς. καὶ τὰ μὲν λιθοκέφαλα ὡς κρέμυς, τὰ δὲ σκληρότατα, τραχύδερμα ὡς κάπρος. καὶ τὰ μὲν δίραβδα ὥσπερ σεσερῖνος, τὰ δὲ πολύραβδα καὶ ἐρυθρόγραμμα ὡς σάλπη. τοῦ δὲ κάπρου μνημονεύει καὶ Δωρίων καὶ Ἐπαίνετος. Ἀρχέστρατος δέ φησιν· αὐτὰρ ἐς Ἀμβρακίαν ἐλθὼν εὐδαίμονα χώραν τὸν κάπρον ἂν ἐσίδῃς ὠνοῦ καὶ μὴ κατάλειπε, κἂν ἰσόχρυσος ἔῃ, μή σοι νέμεσις καταπνεύσῃ δεινὴ ἀπʼ ἀθανάτων· τὸ γάρ ἐστιν νέκταρος ἄνθος. τούτου δʼ οὐ θέμις ἐστὶ φαγεῖν θνητοῖσιν ἅπασιν οὐδʼ ἐσιδεῖν ὄσσοισιν, ὅσοι μὴ πλεκτὸν ὕφασμα σχοίνου ἑλειοτρόφου κοῖλον χείρεσσιν ἔχοντες εἰώθασι δονεῖν ψήφους αἴθωνι λογισμῷ ἄρθρων μηλείων ἐπὶ γῆν δωρήματα βάλλων.

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.
