G. Kaibel: Athenaei Naucratitae Dipnosophistarum libri 15

Book 8


οἶδα δὲ καὶ Φύλαρχον εἰρηκότα που περὶ μεγάλων ἰχθύων καὶ τῶν συμπεμφθέντων αὐτοῖς σύκων χλωρῶν, ὅτι αἰνιττόμενος Πάτροκλος Πτολεμαίου στρατηγὸς Ἀντιγόνῳ τῷ βασιλεῖ ἔπεμπεν, ὡς Δαρείῳ Σκύθαι ἐπερχομένῳ αὐτῶν τῇ χώρᾳ· ἔπεμψαν γὰρ οὗτοι μέν, ὥς φησιν Ἡρόδοτος, ὄρνιν καὶ ὀιστὸν καὶ βάτραχον· ἀλλʼ γε Πάτροκλος, ὡς διὰ τῆς τρίτης τῶν ἱστοριῶν φησιν Φύλαρχος, πεμφθέντων τῶν προειρημένων σύκων καὶ ἰχθύων. ἐτύγχανεν δὲ κωθωνιζόμενος βασιλεὺς καὶ ὡς πάντες διηποροῦντο ἐπὶ τοῖς δώροις, Ἀντίγονος γελάσας πρὸς τοὺς φίλους ἔφη γινώσκειν τί βούλεται τὰ ξένια· γὰρ θαλαττοκρατεῖν ἡμᾶς φησι Πάτροκλος τῶν σύκων τρώγειν.

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.
