Book 10


ἐπεὶ δὲ ἱκανὴν παρέκβασιν πεποιήμεθα περὶ τῶν γρίφων, λεκτέον ἤδη καὶ τίνα κόλασιν ὑπέμενον οἱ μὴ λύσαντες τὸν προτεθέντα γρῖφον. ἔπινον οὗτοι ἅλμην παραμισγομένην τῷ αὑτῶν ποτῷ καὶ ἔδει μὴ προσενέγκασθαι τὸ ποτήριον ἀπνευστί, ὡς Ἀντιφάνης δηλοῖ ἐν Γανυμήδει διὰ τούτων· οἴμοι περιπλοκὰς λίαν ἐρωτᾷς. Β. ἀλλʼ ἐγὼ σαφῶς φράσω· τῆς ἁρπαγῆς τοῦ παιδὸς εἰ ξύνοισθά τι, ταχέως λέγειν χρὴ πρὶν κρέμασθαι. Α. πότερά μοι γρῖφον προβάλλεις τοῦτον εἰπεῖν, δέσποτα, τῆς ἁρπαγῆς τοῦ παιδὸς εἰ ξύνοιδά τι, τί δύναται τὸ ῥηθέν; Β. ἔξω τις δότω ἱμάντα ταχέως. Α. οἷον οὐκ ἔγνων ἴσως· ἔπειτα τοῦτο ζημιοῖς με; μηδαμῶς· ἅλμης δʼ ἐχρῆν τι παραφέρειν ποτήριον. Β. οἶσθʼ οὖν ὅπως δεῖ τοῦτό σʼ ἐκπιεῖν; Α. ἐγὼ κομιδῇ γε. Β. πῶς; Α. ἐνέχυρον ἀποφέροντά σου Β. οὔκ, ἀλλʼ ὀπίσω τὼ χεῖρε ποιήσαντα δεῖ ἕλκειν ἀπνευστί.

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.
