Book 1

Paragraph
24

ἐχρῶντο δʼ ἐν τοῖς συμποσίοις καὶ κιθαρῳδοῖς καὶ ὀρχησταῖς, ὡς οἱ μνηστῆρες. καὶ παρὰ Μενελάῳ ἐμέλπετο θεῖος ἀοιδός, δύο δὲ κυβιστητῆρες μολπῆς ἐξάρχοντες ἐδίνευον. μολπῆς δὲ ἀντὶ τοῦ παιδιᾶς. σῶφρον δέ τι ἦν τὸ τῶν ἀοιδῶν γένος καὶ φιλοσόφων διάθεσιν ἐπέχον. Ἀγαμέμνων γοῦν τὸν ἀοιδὸν καταλείπει τῇ Κλυταιμνήστρᾳ φύλακα καὶ παραινετῆρά τινα· ὃς πρῶτον μὲν ἀρετὴν γυναικῶν διερχόμενος ἐνέβαλλέ τινα φιλοτιμίαν εἰς καλοκἀγαθίαν, εἶτα διατριβὴν παρέχων ἡδεῖαν ἀπεπλάνα τὴν διάνοιαν φαύλων ἐπινοιῶν. διὸ Αἴγισθος οὐ πρότερον διέφθειρε τὴν γυναῖκα πρὶν τὸν ἀοιδὸν ἀποκτεῖναι ἐν νήσῳ ἐρήμῃ. τοιοῦτός ἐστι καὶ παρὰ τοῖς μνηστῆρσιν ἀείδων ἀνάγκῃ, ὃς τοὺς ἐφεδρεύοντας τῇ Πηνελόπῃ ἐβδελύττετο. κοινῶς δέ που πάντας τοὺς ἀοιδοὺς αἰδοίους τοῖς ἀνθρώποις εἶναί φησι· τοὔνεκʼ ἄρα σφέας οἴμας Μοῦσʼ ἐδίδαξε φίλησέ τε φῦλον ἀοιδῶν. δὲ παρὰ Φαίαξι Δημόδοκος ᾄδει Ἄρεος καὶ Ἀφροδίτης συνουσίαν, οὐ διὰ τὸ ἀποδέχεσθαι τὸ τοιοῦτον πάθος, ἀλλʼ ἀποτρέπων αὐτοὺς παρανόμων ἔργων, εἰδὼς ἐν τρυφερῷ τινι βίῳ τεθραμμένους κἀντεῦθεν ὁμοιότατα τοῖς τρόποις αὐτῶν τὰ πρὸς ἀνάπαυσιν προφέρων. καὶ τοῖς μνηστῆρσιν ᾄδει πρὸς τὴν αὐτὴν βουλὴν Φήμιος νόστον Ἀχαιῶν καὶ αἱ Σειρῆνες δὲ ᾄδουσι τῷ Ὀδυσσεῖ τὰ μάλιστα αὐτὸν τέρψοντα καὶ τὰ οἰκεῖα τῇ φιλοτιμίᾳ αὐτοῦ καὶ πολυμαθείᾳ λέγουσαι. ἴσμεν γάρ, φασί, τά τʼ ἄλλα καὶ ὅσσα γένηται ἐν χθονὶ πολυβοτείρῃ.

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.
