Paragraph
11

ἐπὶ τούτοις τοῖς λόγοις ἔδοξε τοῖς παροῦσι τῶν φιλοσόφων περὶ τοῦ ἔρωτος καὶ αὐτούς τι εἰπεῖν καὶ περὶ κάλλους. καὶ ἐλέχθησαν λόγοι φιλόσοφοι πάμπολλοι· ἐν οἷς τινες καὶ ἐμνημόνευσαν τοῦ σκηνικοῦ φιλοσόφου Εὐριπίδου ᾀσμάτων, ὧν ἦν καὶ τάδε παίδευμα δʼ Ἔρως σοφίας ἀρετῆς πλεῖστον ὑπάρχειν, καὶ προσομιλεῖν οὗτος δαίμων πάντων ἥδιστος ἔφυ θνητοῖς. καὶ παρὰ λυπῶν τέρψιν τινʼ ἔχων εἰς ἐλπίδʼ ἄγει. τοῖς δʼ ἀτελέστοις τῶν τοῦδε πόνων μήτε συνείην χωρίς τʼ ἀγρίων ναίοιμι τρόπων. τὸ δʼ ἐρᾶν προλέγω τοῖσι νέοισιν μή ποτε φεύγειν, χρῆσθαι δʼ ὀρθῶς, ὅταν ἔλθῃ. καὶ κατὰ τὸν Πίνδαρον δὲ ἄλλος τις ἔφη εἴη καὶ ἐρᾶν καὶ ἔρωτι χαρίζεσθαι κατὰ καιρόν. ἕτερος δέ τις προσέθηκε τῶν Εὐριπίδου τάδε· σὺ δʼ τύραννε θεῶν τε κἀνθρώπων Ἔρως, μὴ δίδασκε τὰ καλὰ φαίνεσθαι καλὰ τοῖς ἐρῶσιν ὧν σὺ δημιουργὸς εἶ μοχθοῦσι μόχθους εὐτυχῶς συνεκπόνει. καὶ ταῦτα μὲν δρῶν τίμιος θεοῖς ἔσῃ, μὴ δρῶν δʼ ὑπʼ αὐτοῦ τοῦ διδάσκεσθαι φιλεῖν ἀφαιρεθήσῃ χάριτας αἷς τιμῶσί σε.

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.
