Paragraph
46

ἐπεὶ δʼ ἐν τῷ περὶ τῶν περδίκων λόγῳ ἐμνήσθημεν ὅτι εἰσὶν ὀχευτικώτατοι, προσιστορήσθω ὅτι καὶ ἀλεκτρυὼν ἀφροδισιαστικὸν τὸ ὄρνεον. Ἀριστοτέλης γοῦν φησιν ὅτι τῶν ἀνατιθεμένων ἐν τοῖς ἱεροῖς ἀλεκτρυόνων τὸν ἀνατεθέντα οἱ προόντες ὀχεύουσι μέχρι ἂν ἄλλος ἀνατεθῇ· εἰ δὲ μὴ ἀνατεθείη, μάχονται πρὸς ἀλλήλους καὶ ἡττήσας τὸν ἡττηθέντα διὰ παντὸς ὀχεύει. ἱστορεῖται δὲ ὅτι καὶ ἀλεκτρυὼν εἰσιὼν οἱανδήποτε θύραν ἐπικλίνει τὸν λόφον καὶ ὅτι τῆς ὀχείας ἑτέρῳ δίχα μάχης οὐ παραχωρεῖ. δὲ Θεόφραστος τοὺς ἀγρίους φησὶν ὀχευτικωτέρους εἶναι τῶν ἡμέρων. λέγει δὲ καὶ τοὺς ἄρρενας εὐθὺς ἐξ εὐνῆς ἐθέλειν πλησιάζειν, τὰς δὲ θηλείας προβαινούσης μᾶλλον τῆς ἡμέρας. καὶ οἱ στρουθοὶ δέ εἰσιν ὀχευτικοί· διὸ καὶ Τερψικλῆς τοὺς ἐμφαγόντας φησὶν στρουθῶν ἐπικαταφόρους πρὸς ἀφροδίσια γίνεσθαι. μήποτε οὖν καὶ Σαπφὼ ἀπὸ τῆς ἱστορίας τὴν Ἀφροδίτην ἐπʼ αὐτῶν φησιν ὀχεῖσθαι· καὶ γὰρ ὀχευτικὸν τὸ ζῷον καὶ πολύγονον. τίκτει γοῦν στρουθός, ὥς φησιν Ἀριστοτέλης καὶ μέχρι ὀκτώ. Ἀλέξανδρος δʼ Μύνδιος δύο γένη φησὶν εἶναι τῶν στρουθῶν, τὸ μὲν ἥμερον, τὸ δʼ ἄγριον· τὰς δὲ θηλείας αὐτῶν ἀσθενεστέρας τά τʼ ἄλλα εἶναι καὶ τὸ ῥύγχος κερατοειδὲς μᾶλλον τὴν χρόαν, τὸ δὲ πρόσωπον οὔτε λίαν λευκὸν ἐχούσας οὔτε μέλαν. Ἀριστοτέλης δέ φησι τοὺς ἄρρενας τῷ χειμῶνι ἀφανίζεσθαι, διαμένειν δὲ τὰς θηλείας, τεκμαιρόμενος ἐκ τῆς χρόας τὴν πιθανότητα· ἀλλάττεσθαι γὰρ ὡς τῶν κοσσύφων καὶ φαλαρίδων, ἀπολευκαινομένων κατὰ καιρούς. Ἠλεῖοι δὲ καλοῦσι τοὺς στρουθοὺς δειρήτας, ὡς Νίκανδρός φησιν Κολοφώνιος ἐν τρίτῳ Γλωσσῶν

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.
