Remarks 'Pilot' from Old French 'pilot' from Latin 'pilotus, pedota' from Greek 'pedotes', i.e., rudder, helmsman, from Greek 'pedá', i.e., rudder and 'pedón', i.e., oar, from same Indo-European root 'pod-, ped-' as English 'foot' (p. 395 in Ref. 11979); 'fish' from Germanic 'fiskaz' from same source as Latin 'piscis' from Indo-European word 'piskos' (p. 229 in Ref. 11979).
