[1] The headword is the comparative of the adjective stegano/s (sigma 1020, sigma 1021), here in the neuter nominative/accusative singular or masculine accusative singular. Similarly glossed in other lexica, it must be quoted from somewhere -- possibly (though not necessarily) the quotation about to be given, where it has the transferred sense (cf. LSJ s.v., II.4) more/rather reserved.
