Paragraph
62

περιβλέψας οὖν ἐπὶ τούτοις τοὺς παρόντας καὶ τυχὼν ἐπαίνου ἔφη· ἀλλὰ μὴν καὶ περὶ τῶν ἄλλων πάντων τῶν παρακειμένων λελέξεταί μοι, ἵνα με τῆς πολυμαθίας ἀγασθῆτε· ἐρῶ δὲ πρότερον περὶ τῶν παρὰ Ἀλεξανδρεῦσιν καλουμένων κοννάρων καὶ παλιούρων. μνημονεύει δʼ αὐτῶν Ἀγαθοκλῆς Κυζικηνὸς ἐν γʹ τῶν περὶ τῆς πατρίδος λέγων οὕτως· κεραυνοῦ δὲ σκήψαντος εἰς τὸν τάφον ἀνεβλάστησεν ἐκ τοῦ σήματος δενδρίον, ἐκεῖνοι κόνναρον ἐπονομάζουσιν. ἐστὶ δὲ τὸ δενδρίον μεγέθει μὲν πτελέης καὶ πεύκης οὐθέν τι μεῖον, ἀκρεμόνας δὲ ἔχει θαμέας καὶ δολιχοὺς καὶ ἐπʼ ὀλίγον ἀκανθώδεας, τὸ δὲ φύλλον τέρεν καὶ χλωρόν, τῇ φυῇ περιφερές. καρποφορεῖ δὲ δὶς τοῦ ἔτεος, ἦρός τε καὶ φθινοπώρου. γλυκὺς δὲ πάνυ καρπός, μέγεθος κατὰ φαυλίην ἐλάην καὶ τὴν σάρκα καὶ τὸ ὀστέον ταύτῃ προσείκελον, διαλλάσσον δὲ τῇ τοῦ χυμοῦ ἡδονῇ. καὶ τρώγεται ἔτι χλωρὸς καρπός· καὶ ἐπὴν αὐανθῇ, ποιοῦσιν ἐξ αὐτοῦ ἄλευρα, καὶ πατέονται ταῦτα οὐ μάξαντες οὐδʼ ὕδατι δεύοντες, ἀλλὰ φαύλως ὁκοῖά περ πέφυκεν. καὶ Εὐριπίδης ἐν Κύκλωπί φησι· παλιούρου κλάδῳ. Θεόπομπός τε ἐν εἰκοστῇ πρώτῃ Φιλιππικῶν μνημονεύει αὐτῶν καὶ Δίφιλος Σίφνιος ἰατρὸς ἐν τῷ περὶ τῶν Προσφερομένων τοῖς ὑγιαίνουσι καὶ τοῖς νοσοῦσιν. τούτων δὲ πρῶτον ἐμνήσθην, ἄνδρες φίλοι, οὐχ ὅτι ἡμῖν παράκειται νῦν, ἀλλʼ ὅτι πολλάκις ἐν τῇ καλῇ Ἀλεξανδρείᾳ ἐπὶ τῶν δευτέρων τραπεζῶν παρακείμενα ἔλαβον καὶ ζητηθέντος ἐκεῖ τοῦ ὀνόματος ἐνθάδε τῷ βιβλίῳ ἐντυχὼν ἀνελεξάμην.

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.
