Book 3

Paragraph
27

ὅτι δʼ ὄντως ἐκ τῆς ἄνω χώρας ἐκείνης κατέβη εἰς τοὺς Ἕλληνας τὸ φυτὸν τοῦτο, ἔστιν εὑρεῖν λεγόμενον καὶ παρὰ τοῖς τῆς κωμῳδίας ποιηταῖς, οἳ καὶ περὶ μεγέθους αὐτῶν τι λέγοντες τῶν κιτρίων μνημονεύειν φαίνονται. Ἀντιφάνης μὲν ἐν Βοιωτίῳ· καὶ περὶ μὲν ὄψου γʼ ἠλίθιον τὸ καὶ λέγειν ὥσπερ πρὸς ἀπλήστους. ἀλλὰ ταυτὶ λάμβανε, παρθένε, τὰ μῆλα. Β. καλά γε. Α. καλὰ δῆτʼ, θεοί· νεωστὶ γὰρ τὸ σπέρμα τοῦτʼ ἀφιγμένον εἰς τὰς Ἀθήνας ἐστὶ παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως. Β. παρʼ Ἑσπερίδων ᾤμην γε, νὴ τὴν Φωσφόρον, φησὶν τὰ χρυσᾶ μῆλα ταῦτʼ εἶναι· τρία μόνον ἐστίν. Α. ὀλίγον τὸ καλόν ἐστι πανταχοῦ καὶ τίμιον. Ἔριφος δʼ ἐν Μελιβοίᾳ αὐτὰ ταῦτα τὰ ἰαμβεῖα προθεὶς ὡς ἴδια τὰ τοῦ Ἀντιφάνους ἐπιφέρει· Β. παρʼ Ἑσπερίδων ᾤμην γε, νὴ τὴν Ἄρτεμιν, φησὶν τὰ χρυσᾶ μῆλα ταῦτʼ εἶναι; τρία μόνον ἐστίν. Α. ὀλίγον τὸ καλόν ἐστι πανταχοῦ καὶ τίμιον. Β. τούτων μὲν ὀβολόν, εἰ πολύ, τίθημι· λογιοῦμαι γάρ. Α. αὗται δὲ ῥόαι. Β. ὡς εὐγενεῖς. Α. τὴν γὰρ Ἀφροδίτην ἐν Κύπρῳ δένδρον φυτεῦσαι τοῦτό φασιν ἓν μόνον. Β. βέρβεαι πολυτίμητε· κᾆτα τρεῖς μόνας καὶ τάσδʼ ἐκόμισας; Α. οὐ γὰρ εἶχον πλείονας.

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.
