Book 12

Paragraph
21

πάνυ οὖν ἐξοκείλαντες εἰς ὕβριν τὸ τελευταῖον παρὰ Κροτωνιατῶν λʹ πρεσβευτῶν ἡκόντων ἅπαντας αὐτοὺς ἀπέκτειναν καὶ πρὸ τοῦ τείχους τὰ σώματα ἐξέρριψαν καὶ ὑπὸ θηρίων εἴασαν διαφθαρῆναι. αὕτη δʼ αὐτοῖς καὶ τῶν κακῶν ἐγένετο ἀρχὴ μηνίσαντος τοῦ δαιμονίου. ἔδοξαν γοῦν μετʼ ὀλίγας ἡμέρας πάντες αὐτῶν οἱ ἄρχοντες τὴν αὐτὴν ἰδεῖν ὄψιν ἐν τῇ αὐτῇ νυκτί· τὴν γὰρ Ἥραν ἰδόντες ἐλθοῦσαν εἰς μέσην τὴν ἀγορὰν καὶ ἐμοῦσαν χολήν· ἀνέβλυσεν δὲ καὶ αἵματος πηγὴ ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ αὐτῆς· καὶ οὐδὲ οὕτως ἔληξαν τῆς ὑπερηφανίας, ἕως πάντες ὑπὸ Κροτωνιατῶν ἀπώλοντο. Ἡρακλείδης δʼ Ποντικὸς ἐν τῷ περὶ Δικαιοσύνης φησίν· Συβαρῖται τὴν Τήλυος τυραννίδα καταλύσαντες τοὺς μετασχόντας τῶν πραγμάτων ἀναιροῦντες καὶ φονεύοντες ἐπὶ τῶν βωμῶν ἅπαντες ... καὶ ἐπὶ τοῖς φόνοις τούτοις ἀπεστράφη μὲν τὸ τῆς Ἥρας ἄγαλμα, τὸ δὲ ἔδαφος ἀνῆκε πηγὴν αἵματος, ὥστε τὸν σύνεγγυς ἅπαντα τόπον κατεχάλκωσαν θυρίσι, βουλόμενοι στῆσαι τὴν τοῦ αἵματος ἀναφοράν. διόπερ ἀνάστατοι ἐγένοντο καὶ διεφθάρησαν ἅπαντες, οἱ καὶ τὸν τῶν Ὀλυμπίων τῶν πάνυ ἀγῶνα ἀμαυρῶσαι ἐθελήσαντες. καθʼ ὃν γὰρ ἄγεται καιρὸν ἐπιτηρήσαντες ἄθλων ὑπερβολῇ ὡς αὑτοὺς καλεῖν ἐπεχείρουν τοὺς ἀθλητάς.

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.
