Paragraph
66

οἱ δὲ νῦν προσποιούμενοι θεοῖς θύειν καὶ συγκαλοῦντες ἐπὶ τὴν θυσίαν τοὺς φίλους καὶ τοὺς οἰκειοτάτους καταρῶνται μὲν τοῖς τέκνοις, λοιδοροῦνται δὲ ταῖς γυναιξί, κλαυθμυρίζουσιν τοὺς οἰκέτας, ἀπειλοῦσι τοῖς πολλοῖς, μονονουχὶ τὸ τοῦ Ὁμήρου λέγοντες· νῦν δʼ ἔρχεσθʼ ἐπὶ δεῖπνον, ἵνα ξυνάγωμεν Ἄρηα, ἐπὶ νοῦν λαμβάνοντες τὰ εἰρημένα ὑπὸ τοῦ τὸν Χείρωνα πεποιηκότος, εἴτε Φερεκράτης ἐστὶν εἴτε Νικόμαχος ῥυθμικὸς ὅστις δή ποτε· μηδὲ σύ γʼ ἄνδρα φίλον καλέσας ἐπὶ δαῖτα θάλειαν ἄχθου ὁρῶν παρεόντα· κακὸς γὰρ ἀνὴρ τόδε ῥέζει· ἀλλὰ μάλʼ εὔκηλος τέρπου φρένα τέρπε τʼ ἐκεῖνον. νῦν δὲ τούτων μὲν οὐδʼ ὅλως μέμνηνται, τὰ δὲ ἑξῆς αὐτῶν ἐκμανθάνουσιν, ἅπερ πάντα ἐκ τῶν εἰς Ἡσίοδον ἀναφερομένων μεγάλων Ἠοίων καὶ μεγάλων Ἔργων πεπαρῴδηται· ἡμῶν δʼ ἤν τινά τις καλέσῃ θύων ἐπὶ δεῖπνον, ἀχθόμεθʼ ἢν ἔλθῃ καὶ ὑποβλέπομεν παρεόντα χὤττι τάχιστα θύραζʼ ἐξελθεῖν βουλόμεθʼ αὐτόν. εἶτα γνούς πως τοῦθʼ ὑποδεῖται, κᾆτά τις εἶπε τῶν ξυμπινόντων ἤδη σύ; τί οὐχ ὑποπίνεις; οὐχ ὑπολύσεις αὐτόν; δʼ ἄχθεται αὐτὸς θύων τῷ κατακωλύοντι καὶ εὐθὺς ἔλεξʼ ἐλεγεῖα· μηδένα μήτʼ ἀέκοντα μένειν κατέρυκε παρʼ ἡμῖν μήθʼ εὕδοντʼ ἐπέγειρε, Σιμωνίδη. οὐ γὰρ ἐπʼ οἴνοις τοιαυτὶ λέγομεν δειπνίζοντες φίλον ἄνδρα; ἔτι δὲ καὶ ταῦτα προστίθεμεν· μηδὲ πολυξείνου δαιτὸς δυσπέμφελον εἶναι ἐκ κοινοῦ· πλείστη τε χάρις δαπάνη τʼ ὀλιγίστη.

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.
