Same entry in other lexica. LSJ s.v. construes the headword as a generic term, and tentatively compares Hesychius' plural lemma (not in the Suda) tewrei=s, glossed as drape/tai, kakou=rgoi, lh|stai/. However, it seems at least as likely that it is a proper name, with the glosses characterising an individual rather than providing synonyms for an otherwise unattested noun. (For Tenaros as a proper name see Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 15.672A (15.12 Kaibel), unjustifiably emended to Tainaros by Meineke; T. there is a writer cited for a remark about withes.)
