Paragraph
1

Ἐπιτελουμένου δὲ ἤδη τοῦ δείπνου τῶν Φαγησίων ἑορτὴν συντελεῖσθαι νομίσαντες οἱ κυνικοὶ πάντων μᾶλλον ηὐφραίνοντο. καὶ Κύνουλκος ἔφη ἕως ἡμεῖς δειπνοῦμεν, Οὐλπιανέ, (λόγοις γὰρ ἑστιᾷ) προβάλλω σοι παρὰ τίνι εἴρηται Φαγήσια ἑορτὴ καὶ Φαγησιπόσια. καὶ ὃς ἀπορηθεὶς ἐπισχεῖν τε κελεύσας τοὺς παῖδας τὴν περιφορὰν καίτοι ἤδη οὔσης ἑσπέρας· οὐ συμπεριφέρομαι, σοφώτατε· ὥστε λέγειν σοὶ καιρός, ἵνα μᾶλλον καὶ δειπνήσῃς ἥδιον. καὶ ὃς εἰ χάριν ὁμολογήσεις μαθών, λέξω. ὁμολογήσαντος δʼ ἔφη· Κλέαρχος Ἀριστοτέλους μαθητής, Σολεὺς δὲ τὸ γένος, ἐν τῷ προτέρῳ περὶ γρίφων (κρατῶ γὰρ καὶ τῆς λέξεως διὰ τὸ σφόδρα μοι εἶναι προσφιλῆ) οὑτωσί πως εἴρηκε· φαγήσια, οἳ δὲ φαγησιπόσια προσαγορεύουσι τὴν ἑορτήν· ἐξέλιπε δὲ αὕτη, καθάπερ τῶν ῥαψῳδῶν ἣν ἦγον ... καὶ τὴν τῶν Διονυσίων· ἐν παριόντες ἑκάστῳ τῶν θεῶν οἷον τιμὴν ἐπετέλουν τὴν ῥαψῳδίαν. ταῦτʼ εἶπεν Κλέαρχος. εἰ δʼ ἀπιστεῖς, ἑταῖρε, καὶ τὸ βιβλίον κεκτημένος οὐ φθονήσω σοι· ἀφʼ οὗ πολλὰ ἐκμαθὼν εὐπορήσεις προβλημάτων· καὶ γὰρ Καλλίαν ἱστορεῖ τὸν Ἀθηναῖον γραμματικὴν συνθεῖναι τραγῳδίαν, ἀφʼ ἧς ποιῆσαι τὰ μέλη καὶ τὴν διάθεσιν Εὐριπίδην ἐν Μηδείᾳ καὶ Σοφοκλέα τὸν Οἰδίπουν.

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.
