Paragraph
40

ὀρχήσεις δὲ ἐθνικαὶ αἵδε· Λακωνικαί, Τροιζήνιαι, Ἐπιζεφύριοι, Κρητικαί, Ἰωνικαί, Μαντινικαί, ἃς προκρίνει Ἀριστόξενος διὰ τὴν τῶν χειρῶν κίνησιν. οὕτως δʼ ἦν ἔνδοξον καὶ σοφὸν ὄρχησις ὥστε Πίνδαρος τὸν Ἀπόλλωνα ὀρχηστὴν καλεῖ· ὀρχήστʼ ἀγλαΐας ἀνάσσων, εὐρυφάρετρʼ Ἄπολλον, καὶ Ὅμηρος τῶν Ὁμηριδῶν τις ἐν τῷ εἰς Ἀπόλλωνα ὕμνῳ φησίν· Ἀπόλλων φόρμιγγʼ ἐν χείρεσσιν ἔχων χάριεν κιθάριζε, καλὰ καὶ ὕψι βιβάς. Εὔμηλος δὲ Κορίνθιος Ἀρκτῖνος τὸν Δία ὀρχούμενόν που παράγει λέγων· μέσσοισιν δʼ ὠρχεῖτο πατὴρ ἀνδρῶν τε θεῶν τε. Θεόφραστος δὲ πρῶτόν φησιν Ἄνδρωνα τὸν Καταναῖον αὐλητὴν κινήσεις καὶ ῥυθμοὺς ποιῆσαι τῷ σώματι αὐλοῦντα· ὅθεν σικελίζειν τὸ ὀρχεῖσθαι παρὰ τοῖς παλαιοῖς· μεθʼ ὃν Κλεόλαν τὸν Θηβαῖον. ὀρχησταὶ δὲ ἔνδοξοι Βολβὸς μὲν παρὰ Κρατίνῳ καὶ Καλλίᾳ, Ζήνων δὲ Κρὴς πάνυ Ἀρταξέρξῃ προσφιλέστατος παρὰ Κτησίᾳ Ἀλέξανδρος δὲ ἐν τῇ πρὸς Φιλόξενον ἐπιστολῇ μέμνηται Θεοδώρου καὶ Χρυσίππου.

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.
