A written amendment or addition to an existing will.
Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
A supplement or addition to a will. A codicil may explain, modify, add to, subtract from, qualify, alter, or revoke existing provisions in a will. Because a codicil changes a will, it must be signed in front of witnesses, just like a will.
