Kori is Greek for pupil of the eye, hence also platicoriasis "widening of the pupil", as (can be found) under pl.


Simon refers here to the Greek word κόρη /korē/, which would have been pronounced /kori/ in the Middle Ages. He also notes that the word was part of the medical term πλατυκορίασις /platykoriasis/, which literally translates to "wide pupil". The meaning of this word is discussed in a separate entry.
