Book 2


ἔργον ἐστὶν εἰς τρίκλινον συγγενείας εἰσπεσεῖν· οὗ λαβὼν τὴν κύλικα πρῶτος ἄρχεται λόγου πατήρ, καὶ παραινέσας πέπωκεν, εἶτα μήτηρ δευτέρα, εἶτα τηθὶς παραλαλεῖ τις, εἶτα βαρύφωνος γέρων, τηθίδος πατήρ, ἔπειτα γραῦς καλοῦσα φίλτατον· δʼ ἐπινεύει πᾶσι τούτοις, φησὶ Μένανδρος πάλιν· τῆς σκιᾶς τὴν πορφύραν πρῶτον ἐνυφαίνουσʼ, εἶτα μετὰ τὴν πορφύραν τοῦτʼ ἐστίν, οὔτε λευκὸν οὔτε πορφύρα, ἀλλʼ ὥσπερ αὐγὴ τῆς κρόκης κεκραμένη. Ἀντιφάνης· τί φής; ἐνθάδʼ οἴσεις τι καταφαγεῖν ἐπὶ τὴν θύραν; εἶθʼ ὥσπερ οἱ πτωχοὶ χαμαὶ ἐνθάδʼ ἔδομαι .... καί τις ὄψεται. αὐτός· εὐτρέπιζε δὴ ψυκτῆρα, λεκάνην, τριπόδιον, ποτήριον, χύτραν, θυίαν, κάκκαβον, ζωμήρυσιν.

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.
