Armenian

Learned borrowing from Old Armenian սանդուղք (sandułkʿ).

Old Armenian

The origin in uncertain. Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *skand- (to jump, go up) and cognate with Latin scandō (to climb), Sanskrit स्कन्दति (skandati, to jump), Ancient Greek σκάνδαλον (skándalon, trap), Old Irish sceinnid (to spring), but the correspondence of *sk- to ս- (s-) is irregular.
