Abstract: Consider the initial value problem for a first-order differential equation

$\displaystyle y' = f(x,y),\quad y({x_0}) = {y_0}.$

In this paper a new uniqueness criterion is proved. This criterion is related to the numeric equation

$\displaystyle u = {y_0} + (t - {x_0})f(t,u).$

It is also shown that some well-known uniqueness theorems are consequences of our result.
