(Τέκμησσα/Tékmēssa, Latin Tecmessa). Phrygian princess, given to Ajax  as a prize (Hom. Il. 1,138). With her he fathers Eurysaces. In Soph. Aj. the character of T. is developed for the first time, her relationship with Ajax is defined by mutual respect and fidelity (Dictys 2,18; Quint. Smyrn. 5,521-567). Roman tragedy writers also took an interest in the subject, as did Horace (Carm. 2,4,5f.) and Ovid (Ars am. 3,517-520).
