Book 1

Paragraph
33

Ὅμηρος δὲ τὴν τοῦ μύρου φύσιν εἰδὼς οὐκ εἰσήγαγε μύροις ἀλειφομένους τοὺς ἥρωας πλὴν τὸν Πάριν ἐν οἷς φησὶ κάλλει στίλβων, ὡς καὶ Ἀφροδίτη κάλλει τὰ πρόσωπα καθαίρει ἀλλʼ οὐδὲ στεφανουμένους εἰσάγει, καίτοι τῷ ἐκ τῆς μεταφορᾶς ὁμοιώματι σημαίνεται ὅτι ᾔδει τὸν στέφανον. φησὶ γοῦν· νῆσος, ἣν πέρι πόντος ἀπείριτος ἐστεφάνωτο. καί· πάντῃ γάρ σε περὶ στέφανος πολέμοιο δέδηε. παρατηρητέον δὲ καὶ ὅτι ἐν μὲν Ὀδυσσείᾳ ἀπονιζομένους τὰς χεῖρας ποιεῖ πρὶν μεταλαβεῖν τροφῆς, ἐν Ἰλιάδι δὲ τοῦτο ποιοῦντας οὐκ ἔστιν εὑρεῖν. σχολαζόντων γὰρ βίος ἐν Ὀδυσσείᾳ καὶ διὰ τὴν εἰρήνην τρυφώντων· διὸ οἱ ἐνταῦθα ἐθεράπευον τὸ σῶμα διὰ λουτρῶν καὶ κατανιμμάτων. διὰ τοῦτο καὶ ἀστραγαλίζουσιν ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ πολιτείᾳ καὶ ὀρχοῦνται καὶ σφαιρίζουσιν. Ἡρόδοτος δὲ οὐ καλῶς εἴρηκεν ἐπὶ Ἄτυος διὰ λιμὸν εὑρεθῆναι τὰς παιδιάς· πρεσβεύει γὰρ τοῖς χρόνοις τὰ ἡρωικά. οἱ δʼ ἐν τῇ Ἰλιακῇ πολιτείᾳ μονονοὺ βοῶσι· κλῦθʼ Ἀλαλά, Πολέμου θύγατερ, ἐγχέων προοίμιον.

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.
