Discritos is Greek for difficult to determine.


This entry refers to the Greek word δύσκριτος /dyskritos/ "hard to discern or interpret; hard to determine, doubtful, difficult of solution” (LSJ). It is frequently attested in Greek medical works. The word consists of δυσ- /dys-/ {indicating adversity, difficulty} + a derivative of κρίνω /krínō/ {"to distinguish, discern, judge”}.
