Origin of Scita
From the Latin scīta (“those things that have been sought to be known and learned [by the people and their representatives] and that have been enacted by vote [by them]”), the nominative neuter plural form of scītus (“inquired”, “enacted”, “learnt”, “showing knowledge”, “fit, suitable, proper”), the perfect passive participle of scīscō (“I seek to know, inquire”, “I vote for, enact”, “I learn, ascertain”).
