Language: Raetic
Word type: proper noun

Case: genitive
Number: singular

Morphemic analysis: tianus-a
Meaning: 'of/for Tianus'

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.
