Paragraph
53

τούτων δʼ ὑμεῖς, φιλόσοφοι, οὐδὲν ἀσκεῖτε, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸ πάντων χαλεπώτατον λαλεῖτε περὶ ὧν οὐκ οἴδατε καὶ ὡς κοσμίως ἐσθίοντες ποιεῖτε τὴν ἔνθεσιν κατὰ τὸν ἥδιστον Ἀντιφάνη· οὗτος γὰρ ἐν Δραπεταγωγῷ λέγει· κοσμίως ποιῶν τὴν ἔνθεσιν μικρὰν μὲν ἐκ τοῦ πρόσθε, μεστὴν δʼ ἔνδοθεν τὴν χεῖρα, καθάπερ αἱ γυναῖκες, κατέφαγε πάμπολλα καὶ ταχύτατα, ἐξὸν κατὰ τὸν αὐτὸν τοῦτον ποιητὴν ἐν Βομβυλιῷ λέγοντα δραχμῆς ὠνήσασθαι τὰς προσφόρους ὑμῖν τροφάς, σκορόδια, τυρόν, κρόμμυα, κάππαριν ... ἅπαντα ταῦτʼ ἐστὶν δραχμῆς. Ἀριστοφῶν δʼ ἐν Πυθαγοριστῇ· πρὸς τῶν θεῶν, οἰόμεθα τοὺς πάλαι ποτὲ τοὺς Πυθαγοριστὰς γινομένους ὄντως ῥυπᾶν ἑκόντας φορεῖν τρίβωνας ἡδέως; οὐκ ἔστι τούτων οὐδέν, ὡς ἐμοὶ δοκεῖ· ἀλλʼ ἐξ ἀνάγκης, οὐκ ἔχοντες οὐδὲ ἕν, τῆς εὐτελείας πρόφασιν εὑρόντες καλὴν ὅρους ἔπηξαν τοῖς πένησι χρησίμους. ἐπεὶ παράθες αὐτοῖσιν ἰχθῦς κρέας, κἂν μὴ κατεσθίωσι καὶ τοὺς δακτύλους, ἐθέλω κρέμασθαι δεκάκις. οὐκ ἄκαιρον δʼ ἐστὶν μνημονεῦσαι καὶ τοῦ εἰς ὑμᾶς ποιηθέντος ἐπιγράμματος, ὅπερ παρέθετο Δελφὸς Ἡγήσανδρος ἐν ἕκτῳ ὑπομνημάτων· ὀφρυανασπασίδαι, ῥινεγκαταπηξιγένειοι, σακκογενειοτρόφοι καὶ λοπαδαρπαγίδαι, εἱματανωπερίβαλλοι, ἀνηλιποκαιβλεπέλαιοι, νυκτιλαθραιοφάγοι, νυκτιπαταιπλάγιοι, μειρακιεξαπάται καὶ συλλαβοπευσιλαληταί, δοξοματαιόσοφοι, ζηταρετησιάδαι.

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.
