ΣΦΥΡΑΙΝΑΙ. ταύτας φησὶν Ἱκέσιος τροφιμωτέρας εἶναι τῶν γόγγρων, ἀπειθεῖς δὲ τὴν γεῦσιν καὶ ἀστόμους, εὐχυλίᾳ δὲ μέσους. δὲ Δωρίων σφύραιναν, φησίν, ἣν καλοῦσι κέστραν. Ἐπίχαρμος δʼ ἐν Μούσαις κέστραν ὀνομάσας οὐκ ἔτι σφυραίνας ὀνομάζει ὡς ταὐτὸν οὔσας· χαλκίδας τε καὶ κύνας κέστρας τε πέρκας τʼ αἰόλας. καὶ Σώφρων ἐν ἀνδρείοις· κέστραι βότιν κάπτουσαι. Σπεύσιππος δὲ ἐν δευτέρῳ Ὁμοίων ὡς παραπλήσια ἐκτίθεται κέστραν, βελόνην, σαυρίδα. καὶ οἱ Ἀττικοὶ δὲ ὡς ἐπὶ τὸ πολὺ τὴν σφύραιναν καλοῦσι κέστραν, σπανίως δὲ τῷ τῆς σφυραίνης ὀνόματι ἐχρήσαντο. Στράττις γοῦν ἐν Μακεδόσιν ἐρομένου τινὸς Ἀττικοῦ ὡς ἀγνοοῦντος τὸ ὄνομα καὶ λέγοντος· σφύραινα δʼ ἐστὶ τίς; φησὶν ἕτερος· κέστραν μὲν ὔμμες ὡττικοὶ κικλήσκετε. Ἀντιφάνης ἐν Εὐθυδίκῳ· πάνυ συχνὴ σφύραινα. Β. κέστραν ἀττικιστὶ δεῖ λέγειν. Νικοφῶν δʼ ἐν Πανδώρᾳ· κέστραι τε καὶ λάβρακες. Ἐπίχαρμος Ἥβας γάμῳ· κέστρας τε πέρκας τʼ αἰόλας.

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.
