Δοῦρις δʼ ἐν ζʹ Μακεδονικῶν περὶ Πασικύπρου λέγων τοῦ ἐν Κύπρῳ βασιλέως ὅτι ἄσωτος ἦν γράφει καὶ τάδε· Ἀλέξανδρος μετὰ τὴν Τύρου πολιορκίαν Πνυταγόραν ἀποστέλλων ἄλλας τε δωρεὰς ἔδωκε καὶ χωρίον ᾐτήσατο. πρότερον δὲ τοῦτο Πασίκυπρος βασιλεύων ἀπέδοτο διʼ ἀσωτίαν πεντήκοντα ταλάντων Πυγμαλίωνι τῷ Κιτιεῖ, ἅμα τὸ χωρίον καὶ τὴν αὑτοῦ βασιλείαν· καὶ λαβὼν τὰ χρήματα κατεγήρασεν ἐν Ἀμαθοῦντι. τοιοῦτος ἐγένετο καὶ Αἰθίοψ Κορίνθιος, ὥς φησι Δημήτριος Σκήψιος, οὗ μνημονεύει Ἀρχίλοχος ὑπὸ φιληδονίας γὰρ καὶ ἀκρασίας καὶ οὗτος μετʼ Ἀρχίου πλέων εἰς Σικελίαν ὅτʼ ἔμελλεν κτίζειν Συρακούσας τῷ ἑαυτοῦ συσσίτῳ μελιτούττης ἀπέδοτο τὸν κλῆρον ὃν ἐν Συρακούσαις λαχὼν ἔμελλεν ἕξειν.

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.
