EtymologyEdit

Usually considered identical to Old Saxon stīga (German Stiege), Middle Dutch stîge (Dutch stijg), all “twenty” (of an agricultural product). The further origin of this word is uncertain. It has been compared to Ancient Greek στίχος (stíkhos, row, line), which if related, from Proto-Indo-European *steygʰ- (to walk, go, ascend).
