ΕΓΚΕΦΑΛΟΣ ΦΟΙΝΙΚΟΣ. Θεόφραστος περὶ φοίνικος τοῦ φυτοῦ εἰπὼν ἐπιφέρει· μὲν οὖν ἀπὸ τῶν καρπῶν φυτεία τοιαύτη τις· δʼ ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ, ὅταν ἀφέλωσι τὸ ἄνω ἐν ᾧπερ ἐγκέφαλος. καὶ Ξενοφῶν ἐν δευτέρῳ Ἀναβάσεως γράφει τάδε· ἐνταῦθα καὶ τὸν ἐγκέφαλον τοῦ φοίνικος πρῶτον ἔφαγον οἱ στρατιῶται· καὶ οἱ πολλοὶ ἐθαύμαζον τό τε εἶδος καὶ τὴν ἰδιότητα τῆς ἡδονῆς· ἦν δὲ σφόδρα καὶ τοῦτο κεφαλαλγές. δὲ φοῖνιξ, ὅταν ἐξαιρεθῇ ἐγκέφαλος, ὅλος ἐξαυαίνεται. Νίκανδρος Γεωργικοῖς· σὺν καὶ φοίνικος παραφυάδας ἐκκόπτοντες ἐγκέφαλον φορέουσι νέοις ἀσπαστὸν ἔδεσμα. Δίφιλος δʼ Σίφνιος ἱστορεῖ· οἱ τῶν φοινίκων ἐγκέφαλοι πλήσμιοι καὶ πολύτροφοι, ἔτι δὲ βαρεῖς καὶ δυσοικονόμητοι διψώδεις τε καὶ στατικοὶ κοιλίας. ἡμεῖς δέ, φησὶν οὗτος, ἑταῖρε Τιμόκρατες, δόξομεν ἐγκέφαλον ἔχειν μέχρι τοῦ τέλους, εἰ καταπαύσομεν ἐνταῦθα καὶ τήνδε τὴν συναγωγήν.

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.
