Paragraph
7

τοιαῦτα πολλὰ τοῦ Λαρηνσίου λέγοντος Λεωνίδης ψέγων τὸ τῆς γαμετῆς ὄνομα τὰ ἐκ τῶν Μάντεων Ἀλέξιδος προηνέγκατο ταυτί τῶν ἐπῶν· δυστυχεῖς ἡμεῖς ... οἱ πεπρακότες τὴν τοῦ βίου παρρησίαν καὶ τὴν τρυφήν· γυναιξὶ δοῦλοι ζῶμεν ἀντ ̓ ἐλευθέρων. ἔπειτ ̓ ἔχειν προῖκ ̓, οὐχὶ τιμὴν πάσχομεν; πικράν γε καὶ μεστὴν γυναικείας χολῆς. τῶν γὰρ ἀνδρῶν ἐστι πρὸς ἐκείνην μέλι· οἳ μέν γε συγγνώμην ἔχουσ ̓ ἀδικούμενοι, αὗται δ ̓ ἀδικοῦσαι καὶ προσεγκαλοῦσ ̓ ἔτι· ὧν οὐκ ἐχρῆν ἄρχουσιν, ὧν δ ̓ ἄρχειν ἐχρῆν ἀμελοῦσιν, ἐπιορκοῦσιν, οὐδὲ ἓν κακὸν ἔχουσι καὶ κάμνειν λέγουσ ̓ ἑκάστοτε. Ξέναρχος δ ̓ ἐν Ὕπνῳ φησίν· εἶτ ̓ εἰσὶν οἱ τέττιγες οὐκ εὐδαίμονες, ὧν ταῖς γυναιξὶν οὐδ ̓ ὁτιοῦν φωνῆς ἔνι; Φιλέταιρος Κορινθιαστῇ· ὡς τακερόν, Ζεῦ, καὶ μαλακὸν τὸ βλέμμ ̓ ἔχει. οὐκ ἐτὸς Ἑταίρας ἱερόν ἐστι πανταχοῦ, ἀλλ ̓ οὐχὶ γαμετῆς οὐδαμοῦ τῆς Ἑλλάδος. Ἄμφις δ ̓ ἐν Ἀθάμαντι· εἶτ ̓ οὐ γυναικός ἐστιν εὐνοικώτερον γαμετῆς ἑταίρα; πολύ γε καὶ μάλ ̓ εἰκότως. μὲν νόμῳ γὰρ καταφρονοῦσ ̓ ἔνδον μένει, δ ̓ οἶδεν ὅτι τοῖς τρόποις ὠνητέος ἄνθρωπός ἐστιν πρὸς ἄλλον ἀπιτέον.

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.
