καὶ Κύνουλκος ἀνεβόησε· καὶ τίνʼ ἂν τῶν μεγάλων οὗτος οὐκ ἰχθύων, ἀλλὰ ζητήσεων ἐπὶ νοῦν λάβοι; ὃς τὰς ἀκάνθας ἀεὶ ἐκλέγει ἑψητῶν τε καὶ ἀθερινῶν καὶ εἴ τι τούτων ἀτυχέστερόν ἐστιν ἰχθύδιον, τὰ μεγάλα τεμάχη παραπεμπόμενος. καθάπερ γὰρ ἐν ταῖς γεννικαῖς εὐωχίαις, φησὶν ἐν Ἰξίονι Εὔβουλος, ἀμύλων παρόντων ἐσθίουσʼ ἑκάστοτε ἄνηθα καὶ σέλινα καὶ φλυαρίας καὶ κάρδαμʼ ἐσκευασμένα, οὕτω μοι δοκεῖ καὶ λεβητοχάρων Οὐλπιανός, κατὰ τὸν ἐμὸν Μεγαλοπολίτην Κερκιδᾶν, μηδὲν μὲν ἐσθίειν τῶν ἀνδρὶ προσηκόντων, τηρεῖν δὲ τοὺς ἐσθίοντας εἰ παρεῖδον ἄκανθαν τῶν τραγανῶν τι χονδρῶδες τῶν παρατεθέντων, οὐδʼ ἐπὶ νοῦν βαλλόμενος τὸ τοῦ καλοῦ καὶ λαμπροῦ Αἰσχύλου, ὃς τὰς αὑτοῦ τραγῳδίας τεμάχη εἶναι ἔλεγεν τῶν Ὁμήρου μεγάλων δείπνων. φιλόσοφος δὲ ἦν τῶν πάνυ Αἰσχύλος, ὃς καὶ ἡττηθεὶς ἀδίκως ποτέ, ὡς Θεόφραστος Χαμαιλέων ἐν τῷ περὶ ἡδονῆς εἴρηκεν, ἔφη χρόνῳ τὰς τραγῳδίας ἀνατιθέναι, εἰδὼς ὅτι κομιεῖται τὴν προσήκουσαν τιμήν.

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.
