Book 12

Paragraph
6

διόπερ καὶ Μεγακλείδης ἐπιτιμᾷ τοῖς μεθʼ Ὅμηρον καὶ Ἡσίοδον ποιηταῖς ὅσοι περὶ Ἡρακλέους εἰρήκασιν ὡς στρατοπέδων ἡγεῖτο καὶ πόλεις ᾕρει· ὃς μεθʼ ἡδονῆς πλείστης τὸν μετʼ ἀνθρώπων βίον διετέλεσε, πλείστας μὲν γυναῖκας γήμας, ἐκ πλείστων δὲ λάθρᾳ παρθένων παιδοποιησάμενος. εἴποι γὰρ ἄν τις πρὸς τοὺς οὐ ταῦτα παραδεχομένους· πόθεν, οὗτοι, τὴν περὶ τὰς ἐδωδὰς αὐτῷ σπουδὴν ἀνατίθετε, πόθεν παρῆλθεν εἰς τοὺς ἀνθρώπους τὸ τῆς λοιβαίας κύλικος μηδὲν ὑπολείπεσθαι, εἰ μὴ τὰ περὶ τὰς ἡδονὰς ἐδοκίμαζεν, διὰ τί τὰ θερμὰ λουτρὰ τὰ φαινόμενα ἐκ τῆς γῆς πάντες Ἡρακλέους φασὶν εἶναι ἱερά, διὰ τί τὰς μαλακὰς στρωμνὰς Ἡρακλέους κοίτας εἰώθασι καλεῖν, εἰ κατεφρόνει τῶν ἡδέως ζώντων; τοῦτον οὖν, φησίν, οἱ νέοι ποιηταὶ κατασκευάζουσιν ἐν λῃστοῦ σχήματι μόνον περιπορευόμενον, ξύλον ἔχοντα καὶ λεοντῆν καὶ τόξα· καὶ ταῦτα πλάσαι πρῶτον Στησίχορον τὸν Ἱμεραῖον. καὶ Ξάνθος δʼ μελοποιός, πρεσβύτερος ὢν Στησιχόρου, ὡς καὶ αὐτὸς Στησίχορος μαρτυρεῖ, ὥς φησιν Μεγακλείδης, οὐ ταύτην αὐτῷ περιτίθησι τὴν στολήν, ἀλλὰ τὴν Ὁμηρικήν. πολλὰ δὲ τῶν Ξάνθου παραπεποίηκεν Στησίχορος, ὥσπερ καὶ τὴν Ὀρέστειαν καλουμένην. Ἀντισθένης δὲ τὴν ἡδονὴν ἀγαθὸν εἶναι φάσκων προσέθηκεν τὴν ἀμεταμέλητον.

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.
