شَنَبٌ

* وَفِى اللِّثَاتِ وَفِى أَنْيَابِهَا شَنَبُ *
[which should be rendered And in the gums, and in her canine teeth, is coolness], corroborates the assertion of Aṣ; for there is no sharpness in the gum: (Ṣ, L, TA:) it is also related of As that he said, I asked Ru-beh respecting the meaning of شَنَبٌ, and he took a grain of pomegranate, and pointed to its lustre: (Mz, TA:) [and شُنْبَةٌ signifies the same:] a poet says,
* مُنَصَّبُهَا حَمْشٌ أَحَمُّ يَزِينُهُ *
* عَوَارِضُ فِيهَا شُنْبَةٌ وَغُرُوبُ *
[Her even set of front teeth are slender and white, side teeth in which are coolness and lustre adorning them]. (O, TA.)
[In the present day, it signifies The mustache.]
