Origin of viz

From Latin videlicet (“that is to say, namely"), short for videre licet (“it is permitted to see "). The "˜z' was originally not a letter but a common Middle Latin scribal abbreviation that was used for -et, specifically a Tironian note. The symbol resembled "˜z', or rather 3 and Èœ, and hence is thus represented in type. Compare ⁊, the Tironian symbol for Latin et (“and") (in isolation, not as suffix).
