The unglossed headword, a feminine noun, is attested only here.
[1] Greek Anthology 7.198.1-2 (Leonidas of Tarentum), an epitaph for the pet grasshopper of a woman named Philaenis (here abridged, and with the words mikro\s i)dei=n reversed), which in fact gives the form of the adjective as tumbi/ths. Also see Gow and Page (vol. I, 114), (vol. II, 330-332), and other extracts from this epigram at epsilon 3926 and kappa 197. Gow and Page (vol. I, 114) here follow the Anthologia Palatina (AP) and the Anthologia Planudea in reading tumbi/ths. The Suda, however, adopts an emendation of the AP scribe designated C (the Corrector) and transmits tumbei/ths (ibid.).
