A borrowing from Old East Slavic сума (suma) (compare Russian сума (sumá)), itself borrowed (via Polish) from Old High German soum (burden) (compare German Saum), from Ancient Greek σάγμα (sagma) (whence also Latin sagma, sauma (burden saddle, burden)). The borrowing happened in the 13th century, when Old East Slavic у was still pronounced as [oː]. The word soma is first attested in 17th-century dictionaries with meanings such as “bread sack”, “bag”, “travel bag”.[1]
