The headword is an irregular superlative of the adjective terpno/s, in the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular. Adler suggests that the entry might derive from a scholion on Callimachus: Philoxenos and the Etymologicum Magnum attribute to him the phrase te/rpnistoi de\ tokeu=si to/q' ui(e/es (fr. 536 Pfeiffer), and the Suda's te/rpniston is registered as Hecale fr. 369.
