Paragraph
26

πολὺ δὲ τὸ σύντονον καὶ καματηρὸν τῆς περὶ τὴν σφαιριστικὴν ἁμίλλης τό τε κατὰ τοὺς τραχηλισμοὺς ῥωμαλέον. Ἀντιφάνης· οἴμοι κακοδαίμων, τὸν τράχηλον ὡς ἔχω. διηγεῖται δὲ τὴν φαινίνδα παιδιὰν οὕτως Ἀντιφάνης· σφαῖραν λαβὼν τῷ μὲν διδοὺς ἔχαιρε, τὸν δʼ ἔφευγʼ ἅμα, τοῦ δʼ ἐξέκρουσε, τὸν δʼ ἀνέστησεν πάλιν, κλαγκταῖσι φωναῖς ......... ἔξω, μακράν, παρʼ αὐτόν, ὑπὲρ αὐτόν, κάτω, ἄνω, βραχεῖαν, ἀπόδος ἐν καταστροφῇ. ἐκαλεῖτο δὲ φαινίνδα ἀπὸ τῆς ἀφέσεως τῶν σφαιριζόντων, ὅτι εὑρετὴς αὐτοῦ, ὥς φησιν Ἰόβας Μαυρούσιος, Φαινέστιος παιδοτρίβης. καὶ Ἀντιφάνης· φαινίνδα παίζων ᾔεις ἐν Φαινεστίου. ἐφρόντιζον δὲ εὐρυθμίας οἱ σφαιρίζοντες. Δαμόξενος γοῦν φησι· νεανίας τις ἐσφαίριζεν εἷς ἐτῶν ἴσως ἑκκαίδεκʼ ἑπτακαίδεκα, Κῷος· θεοὺς γὰρ φαίνεθʼ νῆσος φέρειν. ὃς ἐπεί ποτʼ ἐμβλέψειε τοῖς καθημένοις, λαμβάνων τὴν σφαῖραν διδούς, ἅμα πάντες ἐβοῶμεν· .......... δʼ εὐρυθμία, τὸ δʼ ἦθος, τάξις δʼ ὅση. ἐν τῷ τι πράττειν λέγειν ἐφαίνετο τέρας τι κάλλους, ἄνδρες· οὔτʼ ἀκήκοα ἔμπροσθεν οὔθʼ ἑόρακα τοιαύτην χάριν. κακὸν ἄν τι μεῖζον ἔλαβον, εἰ πλείω χρόνον ἔμεινα· καὶ νῦν δʼ οὐχ ὑγιαίνειν μοι δοκῶ. ἐσφαίριζε δʼ οὐκ ἀηδῶς καὶ Κτησίβιος Χαλκιδεὺς φιλόσοφος· καὶ πολλοὶ διὰ τὴν σφαιρικὴν αὐτῷ συναπεδύοντο τῶν Ἀντιγόνου τοῦ βασιλέως φίλων. συνέγραψε δὲ περὶ σφαιριστικῆς Τιμοκράτης Λάκων.

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.
