Book 8


Πυθιονίκην δέ φησι φιληδεῖν ταρίχῳ, ἐπεὶ ἐραστὰς εἶχε τοὺς Χαιρεφίλου τοῦ ταριχοπώλου υἱούς, ὡς Τιμοκλῆς ἐν Ἰκαρίοις φησίν· Ἄνυτος παχὺς πρὸς Πυθιονίκην ὅταν ἐλθὼν φάγῃ τι. καλεῖ γὰρ αὐτόν, ὥς φασιν, ὁπόταν Χαιρεφίλου τοὺς δύο σκόμβρους ξενίσῃ μεγάλους ἡδομένη. καὶ πάλιν· Πυθιονίκη δʼ ἀσμένως σε δέξεται καὶ σοῦ κατέδεται τυχὸν ἴσως νῦν ἔχεις λαβὼν παρʼ ἡμῶν δῶρʼ· ἄπληστός ἐστι γάρ. ὅμως δὲ δοῦναί σοι κέλευσον σαργάνας αὐτήν· ταρίχους εὐπόρως γὰρ τυγχάνει ἔχουσα καὶ σύνεστι σαπέρδαις δυσὶν καὶ ταῦτʼ ἀνάλτοις καὶ πλατυρρύγχοις τισί. πρὸ τούτων δʼ ἦν ἐραστὴς αὐτῆς Κωβιός τις ὄνομα.

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.
