Book 2


μετὰ ταῦτα ἀναστάντες κατεκλίνθημεν ὡς ἕκαστος ἤθελε, οὐ περιμείναντες ὀνομακλήτορα τὸν τῶν δείπνων ταξίαρχον. ὅτι καὶ τρίκλινοι οἶκοι καὶ τετράκλινοι καὶ ἑπτάκλινοι καὶ ἐννεάκλινοι καὶ κατὰ τοὺς ἑξῆς ἀριθμοὺς ἦσαν παρὰ τοῖς παλαιοῖς. Ἀντιφάνης· συναγαγὼν τρεῖς ὄντας εἰς τρίκλινον ὑμᾶς. Φρύνιχος· ἑπτάκλινος οἶκος ἦν καλός, εἶτʼ ἐννεάκλινος ἕτερος οἶκος. Εὔβουλος· θὲς ἑπτάκλινον. Β. ἑπτάκλινος οὑτοσί. Α. καὶ πέντε κλίνας Σικελικάς. Β. λέγʼ ἄλλο τι. Α. Σικελικὰ προσκεφάλαια πέντε. Ἄμφις· οὐχ ὑποστρώσεις ποτὲ τρίκλινον; Ἀναξανδρίδης· τρίκλινον δʼ εὐθέως συνήγετο καὶ συναυλίαι γερόντων. ἀλλὰ ξενῶνας οἶγε καὶ ῥᾶνον δόμους στρώννυ τε κοίτας καὶ πυρὸς φλέξον μένος κρατῆρά τʼ αἴρου καὶ τὸν ἥδιστον κέρα.

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.
