199 akribṓs (from akribes, "the high point, extreme," see 195 /akríbeia, "highly accurate") – properly, extremely accurate, very exact; "more (very) accurate" because researched down to the finest detail ("factually precise").

This root (akrib-) refers to gaining exact information with the highest level of accuracy ("exactness") and is acquired by probing investigation to provide a comprehensive circumspect (precise) view in strict adherence to the facts.

["The verb is formed from akros, 'at the point' or 'end.' The idea is, therefore, he 'ascertained to the last point'; denoting the exactness of the information rather than the diligence of the search for it" (WS, 21).]
