ΟΡΚΥΝΟΣ. Δωρίων ἐν τῷ περὶ ἰχθύων τοὺς ὀρκύνους ἐκ τῆς περὶ Ἡρακλέους στήλας θαλάσσης περαιουμένους εἰς τὴν καθʼ ἡμᾶς ἔρχεσθαι θάλασσαν· διὸ καὶ πλείστους ἁλίσκεσθαι ἐν τῷ Ἰβηρικῷ καὶ Τυρρηνικῷ πελάγει· κἀντεῦθεν κατὰ τὴν ἄλλην θάλασσαν διασκίδνασθαι. Ἱκέσιος δὲ τοὺς μὲν ἐν Γαδείροις ἁλισκομένους πιμελεστέρους εἶναι, μετὰ δὲ τούτους τοὺς ἐν Σικελίᾳ. τοὺς δὲ πόρρω Ἡρακλείων στηλῶν ἀλιπεῖς διὰ τὸ πλείονα τόπον ἐκνενῆχθαι. ἐν Γαδείροις μὲν οὖν τὰ κλειδία καθʼ αὑτὰ ταριχεύεται, ὡς καὶ τῶν ἀντακαίων αἱ γνάθοι καὶ οὐρανίσκοι καὶ οἱ λεγόμενοι μελανδρύαι ἐξ αὐτῶν ταριχεύονται. Ἱκέσιος δέ φησι τὰ ὑπογάστρια αὐτῶν λιπαρὰ ὑπάρχοντα τῇ εὐστομίᾳ πολὺ διαλλάσσειν τῶν ἄλλων μερῶν, τὰ δὲ κλειδία εὐστομώτερα εἶναι τούτων.

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.
