hello,

I am Greek  living in London but unfortunately I do not have a Greek keyboard and so I can not find what the word Ixor means - the spelling is not correct!
They sent me from Greece an article from a journal with this tittle but I have  no other details about this resource.

thank you very much

From Random House:

i·chor (#Ækôr, #ÆkÃr), n.
1.   Class. Myth. an ethereal fluid flowing in the veins of the gods.
2.   Pathol. an acrid, watery discharge, as from an ulcer or wound.
[1630–40; < LL #ch$r (in medical sense) < Gk #ch¤r]
—i·chor·ous (#ÆkÃr Ãs), adj.

Η λέξη Ιχώρ (αρσ.) ή Ιχώρος (ο), αναφέρεται και χρησιμοποιείται στην καθαρεύουσα. Έχει τις εξής σημασίες: πύον, σάπιο αίμα αλλά και ορός αίματος. Αναφέρεται ως το περιεχόμενο του κυκλοφορικού συστήματος του προστάτη Γίγαντα της Κρήτης, Τάλω. Κατ' άλλους όμως το «αίμα» του γίγαντα ήταν υδράργυρος.

Can you share with us what the content of the article was to warrant that title? Thanks! (Kali Anastasi tromara!)
