Mid 16th century: from Latin postscriptum, neuter past participle (used as a noun) of postscribere 'write under, add', from post 'after, later' + scribere 'write'.
The source of this word is Latin postscriptum from postscribere ‘write under or in front of, add’ (source of proscribe (Late Middle English) via the sense of ‘writing publicly’). The base elements are Latin post ‘after, later’ and scribere ‘write’. The sense ‘sequel’ dates from the late 19th century.
