What the quote fails to indicate, the manuscripts in which the
palatalising spelling is found are not original -- they are late
(15-17th c.) copies. In primary documents we find only San(U) still
throughout the 14th century.

****GK: The earliest documented S'an(Sjan)-type rendition known to me is the reference to "Sjanok" (a tributary of the S'jan) in 1349 (Slovnyk staroukrajins'koi movy XIV-XV st., II, 412, col. 2 [Kyiv: Naukova Dumka, 1978. The reference is taken from O. Rozov, Staroukrajins'ki hramoty, Kyiv 1928.)****

A full list of references can be found in
Babik (2001). Rieger, by the way, has been one of the critics of
Udolph's etymology.
