Paragraph
34

ὅτι Ἀριστόνικον τὸν Καρύστιον, τὸν Ἀλεξάνδρου σφαιριστήν, Ἀθηναῖοι πολίτην ἐποιήσαντο διὰ τὴν τέχνην καὶ ἀνδριάντα ἀνέστησαν. τὰς γὰρ βαναύσους τέχνας Ἕλληνες ὕστερον περὶ πλείστου μᾶλλον ἐποιοῦντο τὰς κατὰ παιδείαν γινομένας ἐπινοίας. Ἑστιαιεῖς γοῦν καὶ Ὠρεῖται Θεοδώρου τοῦ ψηφοκλέπτου ἐν θεάτρῳ χαλκῆν εἰκόνα ἀνέθηκαν ψῆφον κρατοῦσαν· ὡς δʼ αὕτως Μιλήσιοι Ἀρχελάου τοῦ κιθαριστοῦ. ἐν δὲ Θήβαις Πινδάρου μὲν οὐκ ἔστιν εἰκών, Κλέωνος δὲ τοῦ ᾠδοῦ, ἐφʼ ἧς ἐπιγέγραπται· Πυθέα υἱὸς ὅδʼ ἐστὶ Κλέων Θηβαῖος ἀοιδός, ὃς πλείστους θνητῶν ἀμφέθετο στεφάνους κρατὸς ἐπὶ σφετέρου, καί οἱ κλέος οὐρανόμηκες. χαῖρε, Κλέων, Θήβας πατρίδʼ ἐπευκλεΐσας. ὑπὸ τούτου τὸν ἀνδριάντα, ὅτε Ἀλέξανδρος τὰς Θήβας κατασκάπτων ...., φησὶ Πολέμων φεύγοντά τινα χρυσίον εἰς τὸ ἱμάτιον κοῖλον ὂν ἐνθέσθαι, καὶ ἀνοικιζομένης τῆς πόλεως ἐπανελθόντα εὑρεῖν τὸ χρυσίον μετὰ ἔτη τριάκοντα. Ἡρόδοτος δὲ λογόμιμος, ὥς φησιν Ἡγήσανδρος, καὶ Ἀρχέλαος ὀρχηστὴς παρὰ Ἀντιόχῳ τῷ βασιλεῖ μάλιστα ἐτιμῶντο τῶν φίλων. δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ Ἀντίοχος τοὺς Σωστράτου τοῦ αὐλητοῦ υἱεῖς σωματοφύλακας ἐπεποίητο.

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.
