Book 1


Τραιανῷ δὲ τῷ αὐτοκράτορι ἐν Παρθίᾳ ὄντι καὶ τῆς θαλάσσης ἀπέχοντι ἡμερῶν παμπόλλων ὁδὸν Ἀπίκιος ὄστρεα νεαρὰ διεπέμψατο ὑπὸ σοφίας αὐτοῦ τεθησαυρισμένα· καὶ οὐχ ὡς Νικομήδει τῷ Βιθυνῶν βασιλεῖ ἐπιθυμήσαντι ἀφύης (μακρὰν δὲ καὶ οὗτος ἦν τῆς θαλάσσης) μάγειρός τις μιμησάμενος τὸ ἰχθύδιον παρέθηκεν ὡς ἀφύας. γοῦν παρʼ Εὔφρονι τῷ κωμικῷ μάγειρός φησιν· ἐγὼ μαθητὴς ἐγενόμην Σωτηρίδου, ὃς ἀπὸ θαλάσσης Νικομήδει δώδεκα ὁδὸν ἀπέχοντι πρῶτος ἡμερῶν ποτε ἀφύης ἐπιθυμήσαντι χειμῶνος μέσου παρέθηκε νὴ Δίʼ, ὥστε πάντας ἀνακραγεῖν. Β. πῶς δὲ δυνατὸν τοῦτʼ ἐστι; Α. θήλειαν λαβὼν γογγυλίδα ταύτην ἔτεμε λεπτὰ καὶ μακρὰ τὴν ὄψιν αὐτῆς τῆς ἀφύης μιμούμενος, ἀποζέσας, ἔλαιον ἐπιχέας, ἅλας δοὺς μουσικῶς, μήκωνος ἐπιπάσας ἄνω κόκκους μελαίνης τετταράκοντα τὸν ἀριθμόν, περὶ τὴν Σκυθίαν ἔπαυσε τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν. καὶ Νικομήδης γογγυλίδα μασώμενος ἀφύης τοτʼ ἔλεγε τοῖς φίλοις ἐγκώμιον. οὐδὲν μάγειρος τοῦ ποιητοῦ διαφέρει· νοῦς γάρ ἐστιν ἑκατέρῳ τούτων τέχνη.

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.
