Νικόλαος δʼ περιπατητικὸς ἐν τῇ δεκάτῃ καὶ ἑκατοστῇ τῶν Ἱστοριῶν ΛΕΥΚΟΛΛΟΝ φησιν ἀφικόμενον εἰς Ῥώμην καὶ θριαμβεύσαντα λόγον τε ἀποδόντα τοῦ πρὸς Μιθριδάτην πολέμου ἐξοκεῖλαι εἰς πολυτελῆ δίαιταν ἐκ τῆς παλαιᾶς σωφροσύνης τρυφῆς τε πρῶτον εἰς ἅπαν Ῥωμαίοις ἡγεμόνα γενέσθαι, καρπωσάμενον δυεῖν βασιλέων πλοῦτον Μιθριδάτου καὶ Τιγράνου. διαβόητος δʼ ἦν παρὰ Ῥωμαίοις καὶ ΣΙΤΤΙΟΣ ἐπὶ τρυφῇ καὶ μαλακίᾳ, ὥς φησι Ῥουτίλιος περὶ γὰρ Ἀπικίου προειρήκαμεν Παυσανίαν δὲ καὶ ΛΥΣΑΝΔΡΟΝ ἐπὶ τρυφῇ διαβοήτους γενέσθαι σχεδὸν πάντες ἱστοροῦσι. διόπερ καὶ Ἆγις ἐπὶ Λυσάνδρου ἔφη ὅτι δεύτερον τοῦτον Σπάρτη φέρει Παυσανίαν. Θεόπομπος δὲ ἐν τῇ δεκάτῃ τῶν Ἑλληνικῶν τἀναντία φησὶ περὶ τοῦ Λυσάνδρου, ὅτι φιλόπονος ἦν καὶ θεραπεύειν δυνάμενος καὶ ἰδιώτας καὶ βασιλεῖς, σώφρων ὢν καὶ τῶν ἡδονῶν ἁπασῶν κρείττων. γενόμενος γοῦν τῆς Ἑλλάδος σχεδὸν ἁπάσης κύριος ἐν οὐδεμιᾷ φανήσεται τῶν πόλεων οὔτε πρὸς τὰς ἀφροδισίους ἡδονὰς ὁρμήσας οὔτε μέθαις καὶ πότοις ἀκαίροις χρησάμενος.

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.
