διὸ καὶ Ἔφιππος κωμῳδιοποιὸς ἐν Ναυάγῳ Πλάτωνά τε αὐτὸν καὶ τῶν γνωρίμων τινὰς κεκωμῴδηκεν ὡς καὶ ἐπʼ ἀργυρίῳ συκοφαντοῦντας, ἐμφαίνων ὅτι καὶ πολυτελῶς ἠσκοῦντο καὶ ὅτι τῆς εὐμορφίας τῶν καθʼ ἡμᾶς ἀσελγῶν πλείονα πρόνοιαν ἐποιοῦντο· λέγει δʼ οὕτως· ἔπειτʼ ἀναστὰς εὔστοχος νεανίας τῶν ἐξ Ἀκαδημίας τις ὑπὸ Πλάτωνα καὶ Βρυσωνοθρασυμαχειοληψικερμάτων, πληγεὶς ἀνάγκῃ ληψολιγομίσθῳ τέχνῃ συνών τις, οὐκ ἄσκεπτα δυνάμενος λέγειν, εὖ μὲν μαχαίρᾳ ξύστʼ ἔχων τριχώματα, εὖ δʼ ὑποκαθιεὶς ἄτομα πώγωνος βάθη, εὖ δʼ ἐν πεδίλῳ πόδα τιθεὶς ὑπὸ ξυρὸν κνήμης ἱμάντων ἰσομέτροις ἑλίγμασιν, ὄγκῳ τε χλανίδος εὖ τεθωρακισμένος, σχῆμʼ ἀξιόχρεων ἐπικαθεὶς βακτηρίᾳ, ἀλλότριον, οὐκ οἰκεῖον, ὡς ἐμοὶ δοκεῖ, ἔλεξεν· ἄνδρες τῆς Ἀθηναίων χθονός. μέχρι τούτων ἡμῖν πεπεραιώσθω καὶ ἥδε συναγωγή, φίλτατε Τιμόκρατες. ἑξῆς δὲ ἐροῦμεν περὶ τῶν ἐπὶ τρυφῇ διαβοήτων γενομένων.

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.
