Likewise in other lexica. The headword is feminine nominative plural of stegno/s, variant of stegano/s (sigma 1020, sigma 1021, sigma 1023). Though this form occurs in the Hippocratic corpus, it is taken to be quoted from Proverbs 31.27 LXX stegnai\ diatribai\ oi)/kwn au)th=s "The occupations of her household are steady," a passage which occasioned patristic commentary.
