cryptogram (n.)

"a message or writing in secret characters or code," 1849, from crypto- "secret, hidden" + gram "word, letter." A modern word coined in English; though the elements are Greek, the ancient Greeks would find the construction barbarous. Cryptograph in the same sense was used from 1849.
