Casaubon reference:

Kaibel reference:

The Casaubon-Kaibel reference converter is a tool developed by the Digital Athenaeus Project for finding concordances between the numerations used in the two editions of the 15 books of the Deipnosophists of Athenaeus of Naucratis by Isaac Casaubon and Georg Kaibel. An API allows to integrate data into external services.

Casaubon reference system

Isaac Casaubon (1597)

After the reference to the book number, this system includes an arabic numeral referring to the page of the edition of Casaubon followed by a letter (a-f) corresponding to the subdivision of the page into sections of about ten lines of text (e.g., 12.530d). Missing links in the converter are due to missing pages in the Casaubon edition (e.g., 487a-f).

Kaibel reference system

Georg Kaibel (1887-1890)

In this system each book is logically divided into paragraphs corresponding to units of sense and the paragraphs are referred to with arabic numerals whose numeration starts again at the beginning of each book (e.g., 12.40).
