Paragraph
30

περὶ δὲ τῆς ΣΑΜΙΩΝ τρυφῆς Δοῦρις ἱστορῶν παρατίθεται Ἀσίου ποιήματα, ὅτι ἐφόρουν χλιδῶνας περὶ τοῖς βραχίοσιν καὶ τὴν ἑορτὴν ἄγοντες τῶν Ἡραίων ἐβάδιζον κατεκτενισμένοι τὰς κόμας ἐπὶ τὸ μετάφρενον καὶ τοὺς ὤμους. τὸ δὲ νόμιμον τοῦτο μαρτυρεῖσθαι καὶ ὑπὸ παροιμίας τῆσδε βαδίζειν εἰς Ἡραῖον ἐμπεπλεγμένον. ἐστὶ δὲ τὰ τοῦ Ἀσίου ἔπη οὕτως ἔχοντα· οἳ δʼ αὔτως φοίτεσκον ὅπως πλοκάμους κτενίσαιντο εἰς Ἥρας τέμενος, πεπυκασμένοι εἵμασι καλοῖς, χιονέοισι χιτῶσι πέδον χθονὸς εὐρέος εἶχον· χρύσειαι δὲ κορύμβαι ἐπʼ αὐτῶν τέττιγες ὥς· χαῖται δʼ ᾐωρεῦντʼ ἀνέμῳ χρυσέοις ἐνὶ δεσμοῖς, δαιδάλεοι δὲ χλιδῶνες ἄρʼ ἀμφὶ βραχίοσιν ἦσαν, ..........τες ὑπασπίδιον πολεμιστήν. Ἡρακλείδης δʼ Ποντικὸς ἐν τῷ περὶ Ἡδονῆς Σαμίους φησὶ καθʼ ὑπερβολὴν τρυφήσαντας διὰ τὴν πρὸς ἀλλήλους μικρολογίαν ὥσπερ Συβαρίτας τὴν πόλιν ἀπολέσαι.

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.
