suṣomā सुषोमा

Definition: Occurs certainly as the name of a river in the Nadī- stuti (‘ praise of rivers ’) in the Rigveda. In two other passages it would seem to be a proper name, once masculine, perhaps the people, and once feminine, though Roth sees in the word the designation of a Soma vessel. Its identification is quite uncertain, though it has been thought to be the Xoavos of Megasthenes,6 the modern Suwan.
