ἀλλὰ μὴν καὶ ἱερώτατος Πλάτων ἐν ἑβδόμῳ Νόμων πρόβλημά τι προβάλλει στεφανωτικόν, ὅπερ ἄξιόν ἐστιν ἐπιλύσασθαι, οὕτως λέγοντος τοῦ φιλοσόφου· μήλων τέ τινων διανομαὶ καὶ στεφάνων πλείοσιν ἅμα καὶ ἐλάττοσιν ἁρμοττόντων τῶν ἀριθμῶν τῶν αὐτῶν. μὲν Πλάτων οὕτως εἶπεν. ἐστὶν δʼ λέγει τοιοῦτον· ἕνα βούλεσθαι ἀριθμὸν εὑρεῖν, ἕως τοῦ τελευταίου εἰσελθόντος ἐξ ἴσου πάντες ἕξουσιν ἤτοι μῆλα στεφάνους. φημὶ οὖν τὸν τῶν ἑξήκοντα ἀριθμὸν εἰς ἓξ συμπότας δύνασθαι τὴν ἰσότητα πληροῦν. οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι κατʼ ἀρχὰς ἐλέγομεν μὴ συνδειπνεῖν τῶν πέντε γε πλείους· ὅτι δʼ ἡμεῖς ψαμμακόσιοι ἐσμὲν δῆλον. οὖν τῶν ἑξήκοντα ἀριθμὸς εἰς ἓξ συμπληρωθέντος τοῦ συμποσίου ἀρκέσει οὕτως. εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ συμπόσιον πρῶτος καὶ ἔλαβεν στεφάνους ἑξήκοντα· ἐπεισελθόντι τῷ δευτέρῳ δίδωσιν τοὺς ἡμίσεις καὶ ἑκατέρῳ γίνονται τριάκοντα· καὶ τρίτῳ ἐπεισελθόντι συνδιαιρούμενοι τοὺς πάντας ἐξ εἴκοσιν ἔχουσι, τετάρτῳ πάλιν ὁμοίως κοινωνήσαντες ἐκ δεκαπέντε γίνονται, πέμπτῳ δὲ ἐκ δώδεκα καὶ τῷ ἕκτῳ ἐκ δέκα. καὶ οὕτως ἰσότης ἀναπληροῦται τῶν στεφάνων.

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.
