I am aware that TO STEMMA and hO STEPHANOS overlap somewhat in meaning;
both can mean "garland" or "wreath." Am I correct in assuming, that
despite this overlap in meaning, the two words are etymologically
unrelated? Is there a good reference book to check Greek etymologies? I
need this info for a dissertation footnote.
