    As a Latin word that comes to English through French (rélique) but with a non-Latin suffix, and given English has no orthographic rules that stand up to any kind of test, really you can spell it any way you damn well like. I always write it reliqued, but that's because I've always believed that English is little more than French spoken badly. :)

    This is an ideal solution, at least as good as relic'd.

    Unfortunately, as French-spoken-badly, I can think of plenty of people in my own life who would pronounce reliqued as [rel-i-kwed].

    Relic'd and that's correct enough for me!
