Ydro alias ydor grece aqua a quo omnia supradicta et per .y.psilon debet scribi.

Ydro and on other occasions ydor is Greek for Latin aqua {"water"}, with which many of the previous entries are compounded, and it should be written with ypsilon, {i.e. the letter 'y'}.


In some of the manuscripts the compound form ὑδρο- /hydro-/ is added before the word ὕδωρ /hýdōr/ "water", and indeed many of the preceding entries show hydro- as their first compound element.

For Simon's views on the spelling of the word see Idor.

For the name ypsilon see Y littera.
