Paragraph
39

τὸν αὐτὸν δὲ τρόπον γίνεται τοῖς ὀστρακοδέρμοις καὶ τὰ μὴ ἔχοντα ὄστρακα, καθάπερ αἵ τε κνίδαι καὶ οἱ σπόγγοι ἐν ταῖς σήραγξι τῶν πετρῶν. ἐστὶ δὲ τῶν κνιδῶν δύο γένη· αἱ μὲν γὰρ ἐν τοῖς κοίλοις οὐκ ἀπολύονται τῶν πετρῶν, αἱ δʼ ἐν τοῖς λείοις καὶ πλαταμώδεσιν ἀπολυόμεναι μεταχωροῦσι. τὰς δὲ κνίδας Εὔπολις ἐν Αὐτολύκῳ ἀκαλήφας ὀνομάζει ἔτι τε Ἀριστοφάνης ἐν Φοινίσσαις οὕτως· ἔχε τὸν πρῶτον πάντων ἴφυα φῦναι εἶθʼ ἑξῆς τὰς κραναὰς ἀκαλήφας. καὶ ἐν Σφηξί Φερεκράτης δʼ ἐν Αὐτομόλοις· κἂν ἀκαλήφαις τὸν ἴσον χρόνον ἐστεφανῶσθαι. Δίφιλος δʼ Σίφνιος ἰατρὸς δὲ ἀκαλήφη, φησίν, ἐστὶν εὐκοίλιος, οὐρητική, εὐστόμαχος· κνησμὸν δὲ ποιεῖ τοῖς συνάγουσιν, ἐπειδὰν μὴ προαλείψωνται. ὄντως γὰρ ἀνιᾷ τοὺς θηρεύοντας αὐτήν· ὑφʼ ὧν κατὰ παραφθορὰν νῦν ἀκαλήφη ὀνομάζεται· τάχα δὲ ἴσως διὰ ταύτην καὶ βοτάνη. κατʼ εὐφημισμὸν γὰρ τῆς ἀντιφράσεως ὠνόμασται· οὐ γὰρ πραεῖά ἐστιν καὶ ἀκαλὴ τῇ ἁφῇ, τραχεῖα δὲ καὶ ἀηδής. τῆς μέντοι θαλασσίας ἀκαλήφης μνημονεύει καὶ Φιλιππίδης ἐν Ἀμφιαράῳ οὕτως· ὄστρεʼ, ἀκαλήφας, λεπάδας .. παρέθηκέ μοι. τὸ δʼ ἐν Λυσιστράτῃ Ἀριστοφάνους πέπαικται· ἀλλʼ τηθῶν ἀνδρειοτάτη καὶ μητριδίων ἀκαληφῶν. ἐπεὶ τήθεα τὰ ὄστρεα. μέμικται γὰρ κωμῳδικῶς πρὸς τὴν τήθην καὶ μητέρα.

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.
