I am a postdoc at Imperial College. My interests are rational points on varieties, in particular K3 surfaces and abelian varieties.

comment Origin of the term “Diophantine equation”
Ah, you mean earlier than 1893 (for a moment there I assumed you meant pre-1670, which would have been awesome). Yes, the website does not seem to be perfect (in part user-contributed, so you wouldn't expect it to be).

comment Origin of the term “Diophantine equation”
Too bad though that the 1670 citation for "Diophantus Problemes" (French?) is so unclear. I think the year coincides with the re-edition of Bachet's Diophantus, containing Fermat's marginal notes. I will try to find out if that is indeed the intended source.

This is really great. Thanks! (I edited your answer slightly to make the last entry more conspicuous.)

comment Origin of the term “Diophantine equation”
+1. Thanks! It looks like Bonnycastle and Maynard simply use the adjective "Diophantine" in the sense "resembling the problems considered by Diophantus". From there, I can see how the term could have got generalized. (Of course, I still suspect that the term was coined even earlier, since this is just an algebra textbook.)

comment Are del-Pezzo surfaces complete intersections?
To add to Artie Prendergast-Smith's comment: this means that $X_k$ is a complete intersection iff $k = 0,5,$ or $6$ (the case $n=3,d=2$ he mentioned does correspond to a del Pezzo, but not to a blow-up of $\mathbb{P}^2$).
