Διογένης δʼ τραγικὸς διαφέρειν πηκτίδα μαγάδιδος, λέγων οὕτως ἐν τῇ Σεμέλῃ· καίτοι κλύω μὲν Ἀσιάδος μιτρηφόρους Κυβέλας γυναῖκας, παῖδας ὀλβίων Φρυγῶν, τυπάνοισι καὶ ῥόμβοισι καὶ χαλκοκτύπων βόμβοις βρεμούσας ἀντίχερσι κυμβάλων ... σοφὴν θεῶν ὑμνῳδὸν ἰατρόν θʼ ἅμα. κλύω δὲ Λυδὰς Βακτρίας τε παρθένους ποταμῷ παροίκους Ἅλυι Τμωλίαν θεὸν δαφνόσκιον κατʼ ἄλσος Ἄρτεμιν σέβειν ψαλμοῖς τριγώνων πηκτίδων ἀντιζύγοις ὁλκοῖς κρεκούσας μάγαδιν, ἔνθα Περσικῷ νόμῳ ξενωθεὶς αὐλὸς ὁμονοεῖ χοροῖς. καὶ Φίλλις δʼ Δήλιος ἐν δευτέρῳ περὶ Μουσικῆς διαφέρειν φησὶ πηκτίδα μαγάδιδος, λέγων οὕτως· φοίνικες, πηκτίδες, μαγάδιδες, σαμβῦκαι, ἰαμβῦκαι, τρίγωνα, κλεψίαμβοι, σκινδαψοί, ἐννεάχορδα. ἐν οἷς γάρ, φησί, τοὺς ἰάμβους ᾖδον ἰαμβύκας ἐκάλουν· ἐν οἷς δὲ παρελογίζοντο τὰ ἐν τοῖς μέτροις κλεψιάμβους. μαγάδιδας δὲ ἐν οἷς τὰ διὰ πασῶν καὶ πρὸς ἴσα τὰ μέρη τῶν ᾀδόντων ἡρμοσμένα. καὶ ἄλλα δʼ ἦν παρὰ ταῦτα· καὶ γὰρ βάρβιτος βάρμος καὶ ἄλλα πλείονα τὰ μὲν ἔγχορδα, τὰ δὲ ἔνηχα κατεσκεύαζον.

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.
