Book 6


Θετταλῶν δὲ λεγόντων πενέστας τοὺς μὴ γόνῳ δούλους, διὰ πολέμου δʼ ἡλωκότας, Θεόπομπος κωμικὸς ἀποχρησάμενος τῇ φωνῇ φησι· δεσπότου πενέστου ῥυσὰ βουλευτήρια. Φιλοκράτης δʼ ἐν βʹ Θετταλικῶν (εἰ γνήσια τὰ συγγράμματα) καλεῖσθαί φησι τοὺς πενέστας καὶ Θετταλικέτας. Ἀρχέμαχος δʼ ἐν τῇ τρίτῃ Εὐβοικῶν Βοιωτῶν, φησίν, τῶν τὴν Ἀρναίαν κατοικησάντων οἱ μὴ ἀπάραντες εἰς τὴν Βοιωτίαν, ἀλλʼ ἐμφιλοχωρήσαντες παρέδωκαν ἑαυτοὺς τοῖς Θεσσαλοῖς δουλεύειν καθʼ ὁμολογίας, ἐφʼ οὔτε ἐξάξουσιν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς χώρας οὔτε ἀποκτενοῦσιν, αὐτοὶ δὲ τὴν χώραν αὐτοῖς ἐργαζόμενοι τὰς συντάξεις ἀποδώσουσιν· οὗτοι οὖν οἱ κατὰ τὰς ὁμολογίας καταμείναντες καὶ παραδόντες ἑαυτοὺς ἐκλήθησαν τότε μὲν μενέσται, νῦν δὲ πενέσται. καὶ πολλοὶ τῶν κυρίων ἑαυτῶν εἰσιν εὐπορώτεροι. καὶ Εὐριπίδης δὲ ἐν Φρίξῳ λάτριας αὐτοὺς ὀνομάζει διὰ τούτων· λάτρις πενέστης ἁμὸς ἀρχαίων δόμων.

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.
