The headword, extracted from the quotation given, is a poetic adjective in the masculine (and neuter) dative plural; see generally LSJ s.v. tinqale/os.
[1] The glosses are the dative plural forms of the adjectives xliaro/s (heated) and qermo/s (warm); cf. Nicander, Alexipharmaca 445, 463, and see generally LSJ s.vv.
[2] Callimachus, Hecale fr. 287.5 Pfeiffer.
[3] The Suda lexicographer simply repeats the earlier glosses.
[4] The verb form, attested only here, is the third person plural, aorist optative passive, of the verb kaqugrai/nw, I moisten well; it seems to be intended as a gloss for katikmh/nainto, aorist optative middle of katikmain/w.
