Book 8


καὶ ταῦτα μὲν ταύτῃ, ἄνδρες ἰχθύες· ὑμεῖς γὰρ πάντα συναθροίσαντες βορὰν ἡμᾶς τοῖς ἰχθύσι παραβεβλήκατε καὶ οὐκ ἐκείνους ἡμῖν, τοσαῦτα εἰπόντες ὅσα οὐδὲ Ἰχθύας Μεγαρικὸς φιλόσοφος οὐδʼ Ἰχθύων· ὄνομα δὲ καὶ τοῦτο κύριον, οὗ μνημονεύει Τηλεκλείδης ἐν Ἀμφικτύοσι διʼ ὑμᾶς δὲ καὶ τῷ παιδὶ παρακελεύσομαι κατὰ τοὺς Φερεκράτους Μυρμηκανθρώπους· μηδέποτʼ ἰχθύν, Δευκαλίων, μηδʼ ἢν αἰτῶ παραθῇς μοι. καὶ γὰρ ἐν Δήλῳ φησὶ Σῆμος Δήλιος ἐν βʹ Δηλιάδος ὅταν θύωσι τῇ Βριζοῖ αὕτη δʼ ἐστὶν ἐνυπνιόμαντις· βρίζειν δʼ οἱ ἀρχαῖοι λέγουσι τὸ καθεύδειν· ἔνθα δʼ ἀποβρίξαντες ἐμείναμεν ἠῶ δῖαν ταύτῃ οὖν ὅταν θύωσιν αἱ Δηλιάδες, προσφέρουσιν αὐτῇ σκάφας πάντων πλήρεις ἀγαθῶν πλὴν ἰχθύων διὰ τὸ εὔχεσθαι ταύτῃ περί τε πάντων καὶ ὑπὲρ τῆς τῶν πλοίων σωτηρίας.

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.
