Τέτηκα: ἔτηξα: ἢ ἐτάκην. Πολύβιος: τὸ δὲ τετηκὸς καὶ συνερρυηκὸς ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον ἀναζητοῦντες ὑπὸ τοῦ πυρὸς πλεῖστοι Ῥωμαίων διεφθάρησαν.
[1] The headword is the perfect of τήκω , first person singular, taken to be quoted from Homer, Iliad 3.176 (Helen speaking). Same glossing -- conveying uncertainty as to whether the headword is transitive or intransitive -- in the Synagoge (tau117) and Photius' Lexicon (tau186 Theodoridis); and for the aorist passive gloss, the correct one in this context, cf. also Eustathius ad loc.
[2] Polybius 11.24.11, on an episode in the Romans' capture of Astapa (Spain) in 206 BCE; cf. Livy 28.23.4.
