ippitiko thus it was said itivuttaka

what is the word ippitiko or so that is often heard? It is chanted i think a lot and i would have said it means "thus it was said" i have looked it up and it is just Itivuttaka, the same, is there perhaps some meaning or "piti ko?" or some similar phrase i might think of?

Do you mean iti pi so? Like in the chant: Iti pi so bhagavā arahaṃ sammā-sambuddho...? It means: thus (iti) and also (pi) he (so) is... Itivutaka suttas start with: Vuttaṃ hetaṃ bhagavatā, this was said by the Blessed One.
Bhagavaṃmūlakā no, bhante, dhammā...
