The headword is a two-ending adjective in the neuter nominative/ vocative/accusative singular; see generally LSJ s.v. tanu/floios. The entry is generated by the earliest attestation of the headword: Homer, Iliad 16.767 (web address 1), on the Cornelian cherry tree (kra/neia, Cornel, Cornus mas); cf. Tutin, p. 314 and Eustathius, Commentaries on Homer's Iliad 3.492.7 and 3.927.12. Note also Cunliffe, s.v. tanu/floios (p. 373), with smooth bark; but compare other tanu- compounds (tau 82, tau 83, tau 84, tau 85, tau 86, tau 87).
[1] The gloss follows the scholion (= D scholia) to the aforementioned Homeric passage; cf. Etymologicum Magnum 745.50 (Kallierges) and ps.-Zonaras 1713.18.
