A city.
Greek Original:
*th/benna: po/lis.
'Tebenos' (improbably) in one manuscript; but either way, unattested as such outside lexicography. Somehow connected with the toga (tau 464, tau 465).
Possible identifications (NF): there is a supposed Tabennese at Tafnis, Egypt and associated names. Other possibilities are an error for Trebenna in Lykia, Tebenda in Pontos and Benna (with an article assumed integral) in Thrake.
