Adler number: upsilon,618
Translated headword: to be broken on the wheel
Vetting Status: high
Not as we use the verb troxi/zesqai with the meaning of falling under a wheel and being injured, as the orators also used it, but they call troxi/zesqai to twist those being interrogated on the wheel, in order to confess to others what they know or about their own crimes.
