Magnetoelectric properties of multiferroic TbMnO3 with a cycloidal spiral spin order were investigated as functions of applied pressure and magnetic field. We found that a flop of ferroelectric polarization occurs by applying a magnetic field along the a axis under 2-3 GPa below the Néel temperature of Tb moments. A possible origin of the magnetoelectric transition is discussed based on the observed pressure and magnetic-field profiles of the ferroelectric polarization and the dielectric relaxation. This flop would originate from the 90° rotation of the cycloidal spiral plane from the bc plane to the ab plane.
