Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Tanti (तन्ति) refers to a “series (of cows)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.49 (“The delusion of Brahmā”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O great God, O lord of gods, the ocean of mercy, you are the creator, the sustainer and the annihilator of everything. It is at your will that the entire world including the mobile and immobile is kept checked as the bulls amongst a series (tanti) of cows. After saying so I bowed to Him with palms joined in reverence. Viṣṇu and others too eulogised lord Śiva. On hearing the piteous eulogies made by me as well as by Viṣṇu and others lord Śiva became delighted. He granted me the boon of fearlessness delightedly. All were happy, O sage, and I rejoiced much”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
