Paragraph
8

οὗτος Ἀρχέστρατος ὑπὸ φιληδονίας γῆν πᾶσαν καὶ θάλασσαν περιῆλθεν ἀκριβῶς, ἐμοὶ δοκεῖ, τὰ πρὸς γαστέρα ἐπιμελῶς ἐξετάσαι βουληθείς· καὶ ὥσπερ οἱ τὰς Περιηγήσεις καὶ τοὺς Περίπλους ποιησάμενοι μετʼ ἀκριβείας ἐθέλει πάντα ἐκτίθεσθαι ὅπου ἐστὶν ἕκαστον κάλλιστον βρωτόν τε ποτόν τε. τοῦτο γὰρ αὐτὸς ἐν τῷ προοιμίῳ ἐπαγγέλλεται τῶν καλῶν τούτων ὑποθηκῶν ὧν πρὸς τοὺς ἑταίρους ποιεῖται Μόσχον τε καὶ Κλέανδρον, ὥσπερ ὑποτιθέμενος αὐτοῖς κατὰ τὴν Πυθίαν ζητεῖν ἵππον Θεσσαλικὴν Λακεδαιμονίην τε γυναῖκα, ἄνδρας δʼ οἳ πίνουσιν ὕδωρ καλῆς Ἀρεθούσης. Χρύσιππος δʼ αὐτὸν ὄντως φιλόσοφος καὶ περὶ πάντα ἀνὴρ ἀρχηγὸν Ἐπικούρῳ φησὶ γενέσθαι καὶ τοῖς τὰ τούτου ἐπισταμένοις τῆς πάντα διαλυμηναμένης ἡδονῆς· καὶ γὰρ οὐκ ἐγκαλυπτόμενος Ἐπίκουρος λέγει, ἀλλὰ μεγάλῃ τῇ φωνῇ· οὐ γὰρ ἔγωγε δύναμαι νοῆσαι τἀγαθὸν ἀφελὼν μὲν τὴν διὰ χυλῶν, ἀφελὼν δὲ τὴν διʼ ἀφροδισίων ἡδονήν. οἴεται γὰρ οὕτως σοφὸς καὶ τὸν ἀσώτων βίον ἀνεπίληπτον εἶναι, εἴπερ αὐτῷ προσγένοιτο τὸ ἀδεὲς καὶ ἵλεων. διὸ καὶ οἱ τῆς κωμῳδίας ποιηταὶ κατατρέχοντές που τῆς ἡδονῆς καὶ ἀκρασίας ἐπικούρους καὶ βοηθοὺς βοῶσιν.

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.
