Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

This word exists next to θαμινός (thaminós, crowded, close-set) and θαμά (thamá, often) just as πυκνός (puknós, thick, dense) next to πυκινός (pukinós, thick) and πύκα (púka, thickly, strongly); the barytonesis is caused by the substantivization. Not, as per Alessio, related to Latin tamnus (kind of grape). With its ending in -αμνος, the word seems Pre-Greek; its meaning makes this quite possible.
