How about polis/ptolis < *tpoli- ?

But what would be that *t- in that case? If a specificly (proto-)Greek preposition, what are the other examples? If a part of the PIE root in question, this is effectively the same as *pt- since the question would be whether *pt- or *tp- is simplified in Sanskrit and Lithuanian but retained or just metathesized in Greek.
