Etymology 1[edit]

Of Semitic origin.[1] Appears first in the first century AD, at the height of expansion of the Empire. Also exists a Ancient Greek σεμίδᾱλις (semídālis), this presumably directly borrowed from Aramaic סְמִידָא‎ / ܣܡܻܝܕܳܐ(səmīḏā), from Akkadian 𒆠𒅔𒆠𒅔𒄯𒄯 (/samīdu/, a type of fine groats, coarse flour, semolina), related to Akkadian 𒀀𒊏𒄯𒄯 (/samādu/, to grind fine).
