Paragraph
37

καὶ τοσαῦτα μέν, ἔφη Δημόκριτος, καὶ αὐτὸς ὑμῖν προσοψωνήσας οὐκ ὀψοφαγήσων παρῆλθον διὰ τὸν πάντα ἄριστον Οὐλπιανόν, ὃς διὰ τὰ Σύρων πάτρια καὶ ἡμᾶς τῶν ἰχθύων ἀπεστέρησεν ἕτερʼ ἐκ Συρίας παρεισφέρων. καίτοι γε Ἀντίπατρος Ταρσεὺς ἀπὸ τῆς στοᾶς ἐν τετάρτῳ περὶ δεισιδαιμονίας λέγεσθαί φησι πρός τινων ὅτι Γάτις τῶν Σύρων βασίλισσα οὕτως ἦν ὀψοφάγος ὥστε κηρῦξαι ἄτερ Γάτιδος μηδένα ἰχθὺν ἐσθίειν· ὑπʼ ἀγνοίας δὲ τοὺς πολλοὺς αὐτὴν μὲν Ἀταργάτιν ὀνομάζειν, ἰχθύων δὲ ἀπέχεσθαι. Μνασέας δʼ ἐν δευτέρῳ περὶ Ἀσίας φησὶν οὕτως· ἐμοὶ μὲν Ἀταργάτις δοκεῖ χαλεπὴ βασίλισσα γεγονέναι καὶ τῶν λαῶν σκληρῶς ἐπεστατηκέναι, ὥστε καὶ ἀπονομίσαι αὐτοῖς ἰχθὺν μὴ ἐσθίειν, ἀλλὰ πρὸς αὐτὴν ἀναφέρειν διὰ τὸ ἀρέσαι αὐτῇ τὸ βρῶμα. καὶ διὰ τόδε νόμιμον ἔτι διαμένειν, ἐπὰν εὔξωνται τῇ θεῷ, ἰχθῦς ἀργυροῦς χρυσοῦς ἀνατιθέναι· τοὺς δὲ ἱερεῖς πᾶσαν ἡμέραν τῇ θεῷ ἀληθινοὺς ἰχθῦς ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν ὀψοποιησαμένους παρατιθέναι, ἑφθούς τε ὁμοίως καὶ ὀπτούς, οὓς δὴ αὐτοὶ καταναλίσκουσιν οἱ τῆς θεοῦ ἱερεῖς. καὶ μικρὸν προελθὼν πάλιν φησίν· δέ γε Ἀταργάτις, ὥσπερ Ξάνθος λέγει Λυδός, ὑπὸ Μόψου τοῦ Λυδοῦ ἁλοῦσα κατεποντίσθη μετὰ Ἰχθύος τοῦ υἱοῦ ἐν τῇ περὶ Ἀσκάλωνα λίμνῃ διὰ τὴν ὕβριν καὶ ὑπὸ τῶν ἰχθύων κατεβρώθη.

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.
