|Word type:||proper noun|
|Paradigm:||tianus (singular), tianusa (genitive, singular) (2)|
|Attestation:||NO-2 (tianusataṇ), NO-16 (tianusa/taniun), SZ-16 (laθurusitianusatanin) (3)|
Possibly a Raetic theonym, usually appearing in the benefactive genitive. The attestation with final a can hardly be contested on SZ-16 and also NO-2, if authentic; NO-16 is debatable. The base tianus also appears on its own. See also θianu which casts doubt on the interpretation as a theonym.
