Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Confer with στοῖχος (stoîkhos, row in an ascending series, column), στίχος (stíkhos, row or file of soldiers, line of poetry, verse), from στείχω (steíkhō, walk, march, go or come, march in line or order), from Proto-Indo-European *steygʰ- (to walk). If from this root, cognate with German steigen; English sty, stair, stile; and possibly Latin vestīgō.
