Idros is Greek for Latin sudor {"sweat"} according to the Liber de doctrina greca; and Greek ydrosis means in Latin sudatio {"sweating, perspiration"}.


Greek ἱδρώς /hidrṓs/, itacist /idrós/, means "sweat; exudation of trees, gum, resin" (LSJ) and ἵδρωσις /hídrōsis/, itacist /ídrosis/, is "sweating".

Simon's often quoted source, the Liber de doctrina greca, has so far not been identified.

Hidrosis has survived into modern medical terminology, cf. Martin (1985) hidrosis … 1. The excretion of sweat”, 2. excessive sweating”.
