Book 1


ὅτι Ἀρχέστρατος Συρακούσιος Γελῷος ἐν τῇ ὡς Χρύσιππος ἐπιγράφει Γαστρονομίᾳ, ὡς δὲ Λυγκεὺς καὶ Καλλίμαχος Ἡδυπαθείᾳ, ὡς δὲ Κλέαρχος Δειπνολογίᾳ, ὡς δʼ ἄλλοι Ὀψοποιίᾳ ἐπικὸν δὲ τὸ ποίημα, οὗ ἀρχή· ἱστορίης ἐπίδειγμα ποιούμενος Ἑλλάδι πάσῃ φησί· πρὸς δὲ μιᾷ πάντας δειπνεῖν ἁβρόδαιτι τραπέζῃ. ἔστωσαν δʼ τρεῖς τέσσαρες οἱ ξυνάπαντες τῶν πέντε γε μὴ πλείους· ἤδη γὰρ ἂν εἴη μισθοφόρων ἁρπαξιβίων σκηνὴ στρατιωτῶν. ἀγνοεῖ δʼ ὅτι οἱ ἐν τῷ Πλάτωνος συσσιτίῳ ὀκτὼ καὶ εἴκοσι ἦσαν. οὗτοι δὲ πρὸς τὰ δεῖπνα τῶν ἐν τῇ πόλει ἀφορῶσιν ἀεὶ καὶ πέτονται δεξιῶς ἐπὶ ταῦτʼ ἄκλητοι, Ἀντιφάνης φησί, καὶ ἐπάγει· οὓς ἔδει τὸν δῆμον ἐκ κοινοῦ τρέφειν, ἀεί θʼ ὅπερ Ὀλυμπίασί φασι ταῖς μυίαις ποιεῖν, βοῦν τοῖς ἀκλήτοις προκατακόπτειν πανταχοῦ.

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.
