Ἡδύλος δʼ ἐν ἐπιγράμμασιν ὀψοφάγους καταλέγων Φαίδωνος μέν τινος ἐν τούτοις μέμνηται· Φαίδων δὲ ... φύσκιʼ ἐνείκαι χορδάς θʼ ψάλτης· ἐστὶ γὰρ ὀψοφάγος. Ἄγιδος δʼ ἐν τούτοις· ἑφθὸς κάλλιχθυς· νῦν ἔμβαλε τὴν βαλανάγραν, ἔλθῃ μὴ Πρωτεὺς Ἆγις τῶν λοπάδων· γίνεθʼ ὕδωρ καὶ πῦρ καὶ βούλεται, ἀλλʼ ἀπόκλειε ... ἥξει γὰρ τοιαῦτα μεταπλασθεὶς τυχὸν ὡς Ζεὺς χρυσορόης ἐπὶ τήνδʼ Ἀκρισίου λοπάδα. καὶ γυναῖκα δέ τινα Κλειὼ ἐπὶ τοῖς ὁμοίοις σκώπτων φησίν· ὀψοφάγει Κλειοῖ· καταμύομεν· ἢν δὲ θελήσῃς, ἔσθε μόνη. δραχμῆς ἐστιν γόγγρος ἅπας. θὲς μόνον ζώνην ἐνώτιον τι τοιοῦτον σύσσημον. τὸ δʼ ὁρᾶν μὴ μόνον οὐ λέγομεν. ἡμετέρη σὺ Μέδουσα· λιθούμεθα πάντες ἀπλάτου οὐ Γοργοῦς, γόγγρου δʼ οἱ μέλεοι λοπάδι.

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.
