Paragraph

οἶδα δὲ καὶ Ποσειδώνιον τὸν ἀπὸ τῆς στοᾶς εἰπόντα καὶ περὶ πλήθους ἰχθύων τάδε· ὅτε Τρύφων Ἀπαμεὺς τὴν τῶν Σύρων βασιλείαν ἁρπάσας ἐπολεμεῖτο ὑπὸ Σαρπηδόνος τοῦ Δημητρίου στρατηγοῦ περὶ Πτολεμαΐδα πόλιν καὶ ὡς Σαρπηδὼν ληφθεὶς ἀνεχώρησεν εἰς τὴν μεσόγαιαν μετὰ τῶν ἰδίων στρατιωτῶν, οἱ δὲ τοῦ Τρύφωνος ὥδευον κατὰ τὸ πλησίαλον νικήσαντες τῇ μάχῃ, ἐξαίφνης πελάγιον κῦμα ἐξαρθὲν μετέωρον εἰς ὕψος ἐξαίσιον ἐπῆλθεν τῇ γῇ καὶ πάντας αὐτοὺς ἐπέκλυσεν διέφθειρέν τε ὑποβρυχίους, ἰχθύων τε πολὺν σωρὸν ἀναχωροῦν τὸ κῦμα μετὰ τῶν νεκρῶν κατέλιπε. καὶ οἱ περὶ τὸν Σαρπηδόνα ἀκούσαντες τὴν συμφορὰν ἐπελθόντες τοῖς μὲν τῶν πολεμίων σώμασιν ἐφήσθησαν, ἰχθύων δὲ ἀφθονίαν ἀπηνέγκαντο καὶ ἔθυσαν Ποσειδῶνι τροπαίῳ πρὸς τοῖς προαστείοις τῆς πόλεως.

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.
