Headword: Ταναή
Adler number: tau,70
Translated headword: lengthy
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] long. In the Epigrams: "so thus, lengthy spear, sit opposite the tall pillar [...]."[1]
Greek Original:
Ταναή: μακρά. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: οὕτω τοι μελία ταναὰ ἀντὶ κίονα μακρὸν ἧσο.
The headword ταναή is nominative singular feminine of the epic/tragic adjective ταναός . (In the quotation which follows, the adjective takes the Doric form ταναά .) Similarly glossed in Hesychius and a scholion on Homer, Iliad 16.589 (where the adjective appears in the genitive). The lexica's nominative is probably generated by that passage, but note also Oppian, Halieutica 1.213, where the nominative occurs and the scholia gloss with this adjective amongst others.
[1] Greek Anthology 6.52.1-2, attributed to Simonides; cf. eta 597, mu 504. (But read ποτὶ "against" instead of the Suda's ἀντὶ .)
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; military affairs; poetry
