Paragraph
16

Ἡγήσανδρος δʼ ἐν τοῖς Ὑπομνήμασι τῶν ἡδυσμάτων φησὶν ἐρᾶν πάντας, οὐ τῶν κρεῶν οὐδὲ τῶν ἰχθύων· ἀπογενομένων γοῦν τούτων οὐδεὶς ἡδέως ἔτι προσφέρεται τὸ κρέας οὐδὲ τὸν ἰχθὺν οὐδʼ ἐπιθυμεῖ τῶν ὠμῶν καὶ τῶν ἀνηδύντων. καὶ γὰρ τὸ παλαιὸν παίδων ἤρων, ὡς καὶ Ἀρίστων ἔφη, ὅθεν καὶ καλεῖσθαι τοὺς ἐρωμένους συνέβη παιδικά. πρὸς ἀλήθειαν γάρ, καθάπερ φησὶ Κλέαρχος ἐν τῷ πρώτῳ τῶν Ἐρωτικῶν, Λυκοφρονίδην εἰρηκέναι φησίν· οὔτε παιδὸς ἄρρενος οὔτε παρθένων τῶν χρυσοφόρων οὐδὲ γυναικῶν βαθυκόλπων καλὸν τὸ πρόσωπον, ἐὰν μὴ κόσμιον πεφύκῃ. γὰρ αἰδὼς ἄνθος ἐπισπείρει. καὶ Ἀριστοτέλης δὲ ἔφη τοὺς ἐραστὰς εἰς οὐδὲν ἄλλο τοῦ σώματος τῶν ἐρωμένων ἀποβλέπειν τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς, ἐν οἷς τὴν αἰδῶ κατοικεῖν. Σοφοκλῆς δέ που περὶ τοῦ Πέλοπος διαλεγομένην ποιήσας τὴν Ἱπποδάμειάν φησιν· τοιάνδʼ ἐν ὄψει λύγγα θηρατηρίαν ἔρωτος, ἀστραπήν τινʼ ὀμμάτων ἔχει· θάλπεται μὲν αὐτός, ἐξοπτᾷ δʼ ἐμέ, ἴσον μετρῶν ὀφθαλμόν, ὥστε τέκτονος παρὰ στάθμην ἰόντος ὀρθοῦται κανών.

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.
