pikerel (s.xiii2)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *8,432a picus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  pike (pikerel); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  pickerel n.1; MED:  pikerel n.; DMLBS: 2279b pikerellus ]

The TLL attestation has been added because all other glosses to this particular Latin text are Anglo-Norman. In Classical Latin squilla refers to a variety of crustaceans (cf. Lewis and Short scilla, 1642c), but in medieval times the word seems to have been used for a variety of fish (cf. DMLBS squilla 2, 3174b).
