πολλῶν δὲ λεχθέντων ἐπὶ τοῖς ἰχθύσι λόγων δῆλος μὲν ἦν ἀχθόμενος Κύνουλκος. καὶ καλὸς Δημόκριτος αὐτὸν προφθάσας ἔφη· ἀλλὰ μήν, ἄνδρες ἰχθύες κατὰ τὸν Ἄρχιππον, παρελίπετε (δεῖ γὰρ καὶ ἡμᾶς μικρὰ προσοψωνῆσαι) τούς τε ὀρυκτοὺς ἰχθύας καλουμένους, οἳ ἐν Ἡρακλείᾳ γίγνονται καὶ περὶ Τίον τοῦ Πόντου τὴν Μιλησίων ἀποικίαν, ἱστοροῦντος περὶ αὐτῶν Θεοφράστου δʼ αὐτὸς οὗτος φιλόσοφος καὶ περὶ τῶν πηγνυμένων διὰ χειμῶνα τῷ κρυστάλλῳ ἱστόρησεν, οἳ οὐ πρότερον αἰσθάνονται οὐδὲ κινοῦνται, πρὶν ἂν εἰς τὰς λοπάδας ἐμβληθέντες ἕψωνται. ἴδιον δὲ παρὰ τούτους συμβαίνει τὸ περὶ τοὺς ἐν Παφλαγονίᾳ ὀρυκτοὺς καλουμένους ἰχθῦς γινόμενον· ὀρύττεσθαι γὰρ κατὰ βάθους πλέονος τοὺς τόπους οὔτε ποταμῶν ἐπιχύσεις ἔχοντας οὔτε φανερῶν ναμάτων, καὶ εὑρίσκεσθαι ἐν αὐτοῖς ἰχθῦς ζῶντας.

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.
