Book 2


ὅρα τὸ ἀνατιθεμένων πάντων τὴν ζήτησιν ἤτοι ἀναβαλλομένων. ὅτι τὸ ἄνηστις νῆστις πλεονασμῷ τοῦ α, ὡς στάχυς ἄσταχυς, παρὰ Κρατίνῳ κεῖται· οὐ γάρ τοι σύ γε πρῶτος ἄκλητος φοιτᾷς ἐπὶ δεῖπνον ἄνηστις. τὸ δὲ ὀξύπεινος παρὰ Διφίλῳ· τέρπομαι γυμνοὺς ὁρῶν τοὺς ὀξυπείνους καὶ πρὸ τῶν καιρῶν ἀεὶ πάντʼ εἰδέναι σπεύδοντας. καὶ Ἀντιφάνης· ἓν νόσημα τοῦτʼ ἔχει· ἀεὶ γὰρ ὀξύπεινός ἐστι. Β. Θετταλὸν λέγει κομιδῇ τὸν ἄνδρα. καὶ Εὔβουλος· Ζῆθον μὲν ἐλθόνθʼ ἁγνὸν ἐς Θήβης πέδον οἰκεῖν κελεύει· καὶ γὰρ ἀξιωτέρους πωλοῦσιν, ὡς ἔοικε, τοὺς ἄρτους ἐκεῖ· δʼ ὀξύπεινος. τὸν δὲ μουσικώτατον κλεινὰς Ἀθήνας ἐκπερᾶν Ἀμφίονα· οὗ ῥᾷστʼ ἀεὶ πεινῶσι Κεκροπιδῶν κόροι κάπτοντες αὔρας, ἐλπίδας σιτούμενοι.

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.
