Paragraph
58

ταῦτα τοῦ Μάγνου ἑξῆς καταδραμόντος ἀποβλέψας Κύνουλκος εἰς τοὺς παρόντας τῶν φιλοσόφων ἔφη· εἶδες τὴν Θασίαν ἅλμην οἷ ἄττα βαύζει, ὡς εὖ καὶ ταχέως ἀπετίσατο καὶ παραχρῆμα. οὐ μέντοι παρὰ κωφὸν τυφλὸς ἔοικε λαλῆσαι, ὡς Κρατῖνος ἐν τοῖς Ἀρχιλόχοις ἔφη ἐπιλανθανόμενος γὰρ ἐν οἷς ποιεῖται δικαστηρίοις τῶν καλῶν ἰάμβων αὐτοῦ τὰς ἐπιδείξεις ὑπὸ τῆς ἐμφύτου γαστριμαργίας καὶ ἡδυλογίας κολάβρους ἀναγινώσκει καὶ μέλη πάραυλα κἀκρότητα κύμβαλα καὶ μετὰ τὰς καλὰς ταύτας ἀμουσολογίας περιέρχεται τὰς οἰκίας ἐξετάζων ὅπου δεῖπνα λαμπρὰ παρασκευάζεται, ὑπὲρ τὸν Ἀθηναῖον Χαιρεφῶντα ἐκεῖνον, περὶ οὗ φησιν Ἄλεξις ἐν Φυγάδι· αἰεί γʼ Χαιρεφῶν τινʼ εὑρίσκει τέχνην καινὴν πορίζεται τε τὰ δεῖπνʼ ἀσύμβολα. ὅπου γάρ ἐστιν κέραμος μισθώσιμος τοῖς μαγείροις, εὐθὺς ἐξ ἑωθινοῦ ἕστηκεν ἐλθών· κἂν ἴδῃ μισθούμενον εἰς ἑστίασιν, τοῦ μαγείρου πυθόμενος τὸν ἑστιῶντα, τῆς θύρας χασμωμένης ἂν ἐπιλάβηται, πρῶτος εἰσελήλυθεν. οὐκ ὀκνεῖ δʼ ἀνὴρ οὗτος, καθάπερ καὶ καλὸς Μάγνος, καὶ ὑπερορίους ἀποδημίας ποιεῖσθαι τῆς γαστρὸς χάριν, ὡς αὐτὸς Ἄλεξις εἴρηκεν ἐν Συναποθνῄσκουσιν· ἐπὶ δεῖπνον εἰς Κόρινθον ἐλθὼν Χαιρεφῶν ἄκλητος· ἤδη γὰρ πέτεται διαπόντιος· οὕτω τι τἀλλότριʼ ἐσθίειν ἐστὶ γλυκύ. καὶ Θεόπομπος δʼ ἐν Ὀδυσσεῖ ἔφη· Εὐριπίδου τἄρʼ ἐστὶν οὐ κακῶς ἔχον, τἀλλότρια δειπνεῖν τὸν καλῶς εὐδαίμονα

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.
