Paragraph
10

οὐκ ἀπιθάνως δὲ καὶ Δίφιλος ἐν Ἐμπόρῳ περὶ τοῦ παμπόλλου πιπράσκεσθαι τοὺς ἰχθῦς λέγει ὧδε· οὐ πώποτʼ ἰχθῦς οἶδα τιμιωτέρους ἰδών. Πόσειδον, εἰ δεκάτην ἐλάμβανες αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῆς τιμῆς ἑκάστης ἡμέρας, πολὺ τῶν θεῶν ἂν ἦσθα πλουσιώτατος. ὅμως δὲ τούτων εἴ με προσγελάσειέ τις, ἐδίδουν στενάξας ὁπόσον αἰτήσειέ με. γόγγρον μὲν, ὥσπερ Πρίαμος τὸν Ἕκτορα, ὅσον εἵλκυσεν τοσοῦτο καταθεὶς ἐπριάμην. Ἄλεξις δʼ ἐν Ἑλληνίδι· ἀεὶ δὲ καὶ ζῶντʼ ἐστὶ καὶ τεθνηκότα τἀν τῇ θαλάττῃ πολέμιʼ ἡμῖν θηρία. ἂν ἀνατραπῇ γὰρ πλοῖον, εἶθʼ, ὡς γίνεται, ληφθῇ νέων τις, καταπεπώκασʼ εὐθέως. αὐτοί τʼ ἐπὰν ληφθῶσιν ὑπὸ τῶν ἁλιέων, τεθνεῶτες ἐπιτρίβουσι τοὺς ὠνουμένους. τῆς οὐσίας γάρ εἰσιν ἡμῶν ὤνιοι, πριάμενός τε πτωχὸς εὐθὺς ἀποτρέχει. ἐξ ὀνόματος δʼ ἰχθυοπώλου μνημονεύει Ἑρμαίου Αἰγυπτίου Ἄρχιππος ἐν Ἰχθύσιν οὕτως· Αἰγύπτιος μιαρώτατος τῶν ἰχθύων κάπηλος Ἑρμαῖος, ὃς βίᾳ δέρων ῥίνας γαλεούς τε πωλεῖ καὶ τοὺς λάβρακας ἐντερεύων, ὡς λέγουσιν ἡμῖν. καὶ Ἄλεξις δʼ ἐν Ἐπικλήρῳ Μικίωνος ἰχθυοπώλου τινος μνημονεύει

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.
