Paragraph
75

Ἀρχύτας δʼ ἁρμονικός, ὥς φησι Χαμαιλέων, Ἀλκμᾶνα γεγονέναι τῶν ἐρωτικῶν μελῶν ἡγεμόνα καὶ ἐκδοῦναι πρῶτον μέλος ἀκόλαστον, ὄντα καὶ περὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὴν τοιαύτην μοῦσαν εἰς τὰς διατριβάς. διὸ καὶ λέγειν ἔν τινι τῶν μελῶν· Ἔρως με δαὖτε Κύπριδος ἕκατι γλυκὺς κατείβων καρδίαν ἰαίνει. λέγει δὲ καὶ ὡς τῆς Μεγαλοστράτης οὐ μετρίως ἐρασθείς, ποιητρίας μὲν οὔσης, δυναμένης δὲ καὶ διὰ τὴν ὁμιλίαν τοὺς ἐραστὰς προσελκύσασθαι. λέγει δʼ οὕτως περὶ αὐτῆς· τοῦθʼ ἁδειᾶν Μουσᾶν ἔδειξε δῶρον μάκαιρα παρθένων ξανθὰ Μεγαλοστράτα. καὶ Στησίχορος δʼ οὐ μετρίως ἐρωτικὸς γενόμενος συνέστησε καὶ τοῦτον τὸν τρόπον τῶν ᾀσμάτων· δὴ καὶ τὸ παλαιὸν ἐκαλεῖτο παίδεια καὶ παιδικά. οὕτω δʼ ἐναγώνιος ἦν περὶ τὰ ἐρωτικὰ πραγματεία, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἡγεῖτο φορτικοὺς τοὺς ἐρωτικούς, ὥστε καὶ Αἰσχύλος μέγας ὢν ποιητὴς καὶ Σοφοκλῆς ἦγον εἰς τὰ θέατρα διὰ τῶν τραγῳδιῶν τοὺς ἔρωτας, μὲν τὸν Ἀχιλλέως πρὸς Πάτροκλον, δʼ ἐν τῇ Νιόβῃ τὸν τῶν παίδων· διὸ καὶ παιδεράστριάν τινες καλοῦσι τὴν τραγῳδίαν· καὶ ἐδέχοντο τὰ τοιαῦτα ᾄσματα οἱ θεαταί.

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.
