Paragraph
29

Ἀντιφάνης δʼ ἐν Πλουσίοις κατάλογον ποιεῖται ὀψοφάγων ἐν τούτοις· Εὔθυνος δʼ ἔχων σανδάλια καὶ σφραγῖδα καὶ μεμυρισμένος ἐλογίζετο τῶν πραγμάτων οὐκ οἶδʼ τι· Φοινικίδης δὲ Ταυρέας θʼ φίλτατος, ἄνδρες πάλαι ὀψοφάγοι τοιοῦτοί τινες οἷοι καταβροχθίζειν ἐν ἀγορᾷ τὰ τεμάχη, ὁρῶντες ἐξέθνῃσκον ἐπὶ τῷ πράγματι ἔφερόν τε δεινῶς τὴν ἀνοψίαν πάνυ. κύκλους δὲ συναγείροντες ἔλεγον τοιάδε, ὡς οὐ βιωτόν ἐστιν οὐδʼ ἀνασχετὸν τῆς μὲν θαλάττης ἀντιποιεῖσθαί τινας ὑμῶν ἀναλίσκειν τε πολλὰ χρήματα, ὄψου δὲ μηδὲν .... εἰσπλεῖν μηδὲ γρῦ. τί οὖν ὄφελος τῶν νησιάρχων; ἔστι δὴ νόμῳ κατακλεῖσαι τοῦτο, παραπομπὴν ποιεῖν τῶν ἰχθύων. νυνδὶ Μάτων συνήρπακεν τοὺς ἁλιέας, καὶ δὴ Διογείτων νὴ Δία ἅπαντας ἀναπέπεικεν ὡς αὑτὸν φέρειν, κοὐ δημοτικόν γε τοῦτο δρᾷ τοσαῦτα φλῶν. γάμοι δʼ ἐκεῖνοι καὶ πότοι νεανικοὶ ἦσαν ..... Εὔφρων δὲ ἐν Μούσαις· Φοινικίδης δʼ ὡς εἶδεν ἐν πλήθει νέων μεστὴν ζέουσαν λοπάδα Νηρείων τέκνων, ἐπίσχετʼ ὀργῇ χεῖρας ἠρεθισμένας· τίς φησιν εἶναι δεινὸς ἐκ κοινοῦ φαγεῖν; τίς ἐκ μέσου τὰ θερμὰ δεινὸς ἁρπάσαι; ποῦ Κόρυδος Φυρόμαχος Νείλου βία; ἴτω πρὸς ἡμᾶς, καὶ τάχʼ ἂν οὐδὲν μεταλάβοι.

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.
