[Meaning] a robe. Also [sc. attested is] stoli/s ['robe'], [genitive] stoli/dos.[1]

And elsewhere: "not to walk around at home in a robelet."[3]
Patriarch Nicephorus's interpretation of Dreams: "Wearing a white robe in sleep is very good. Wearing a black robe is not a good sight. [Wearing] a purple robe leads to a long illness. [Wearing] a red robe leads to a good accomplishment. Wearing a robe of a ruler is a dissolution of hopes."[4]

The primary headword, a neuter noun in the nominative/accusative singular, refers in its few literary attestations not to any sort of 'small robe' but to a poor-quality garment associated particularly with philosophers who cultivate an impecunious persona (see n. 3 below). Of the quotations that make up the bulk of the entry, this word only appears in the second (in the dative case).
[1] This supplementary lemma is related to, and differs little in meaning from, the preceding gloss stolh/. This word appears in the first quotation given (in the genitive plural), but not in the others.
[2] Greek Anthology 7.27.8 (Antipater of Sidon), here with a small but unmetrical inaccuracy: the original lacks the word 'or', i.e. 'undiluted' (which by itself often refers to wine undiluted by water) actually describes the nectar. See Gow and Page (vol. I, 16); Gow and Page (vol. II, 44-45); and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 1708, alpha 2147, alphaiota 159, and iota 492.
[3] Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 1.7.2.
[4] This paragraph, with interpretations drawn from Nicephorus I, Oneirokritikon 106-109 (Adler cites Astrampsychus: alpha 4251), contains neither of the two lemmas, but does have several instances (in the accusative case) of the related word used as the initial gloss in the entry, stolh/.
