ΜΑΙΝΙΔΕΣ. ταύτας φησὶν Ἱκέσιος εὐχυλοτέρας εἶναι τῶν κωβιῶν, λείπεσθαι δὲ εὐστομίᾳ καὶ τῷ πρὸς τὴν ἔκκρισιν τῆς κοιλίας συνεργεῖν. Σπεύσιππος δʼ ἐν δευτέρῳ Ὁμοίων ὅμοιά φησιν εἶναι τῇ μαινίδι βόακας καὶ σμαρίδας, ὧν μνημονεύειν καὶ Ἐπίχαρμον ἐν Γᾷ καὶ Θαλάσσᾳ οὕτως· ὅκχʼ ὁρῇ βῶκάς τε πολλοὺς καὶ σμαρίδας. Ἐπαίνετος δʼ ἐν Ὀψαρτυτικῷ φησι· σμαρίδα, ἣν ἔνιοι καλοῦσι κυνὸς εὐναί. Ἀντιφάνης δʼ ἐν Ἀγροίκῳ Βουταλίωνι Ἑκάτης βρώματα καλεῖ τὰς μαινίδας διὰ τὴν βραχύτητα, λέγων οὕτως· τοὺς γὰρ μεγάλους τούτους ἅπαντας νενόμικα ἀνθρωποφάγους ἰχθῦς. Β. τί φής, φίλτατε, ἀνθρωποφάγους; πῶς; Γ. οὓς ἂν ἄνθρωπος φάγοι δηλονότι· ταῦτα δʼ ἐστὶν Ἑκάτης βρώματα, φησιν οὗτος, μαινίδας καὶ τριγλίδας. καλοῦνται δέ τινες καὶ λευκομαινίδες, ἃς ἔνιοι βόακας ὀνομάζουσι. Πολίοχος Κορινθιαστῇ· ὅπως σε πείσῃ μηδὲ εἷς, πρὸς τῶν θεῶν, τοὺς βόακας, ἄν ποτʼ ἔλθῃ, λευκομαινίδας καλεῖν.

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.
