This brief contribution aims to emphasize the necessity for a correction of the widespread use in recent scientific literature of the form *Śuris instead of Śuri to indicate the nominative form of the name of the Etruscan god of the hereafter, homologous with the Greek Hades and associated with the goddess Cavatha, the Etruscan Kore-Persephone. In fact, *Śuris is the genitive form.
