From glosses on Herodotus 1.65.5, where this Ionic accusative plural appears (web address 1): Lycurgus the lawgiver [lambda 823, lambda 824] creates them (amongst other things) in Sparta. For the disputed sense of the term in this passage -- least far from the second of the glossator's three options --- see LSJ s.v. triaka/s, III.2. Cf. tau 938.
