A little help with stems

Hello people,

A Merry Christmas to you all! I'm doing a College 101 course in Greek and we're using Hillard and Botting and Abbot and Mansfield. At the moment, we're doing comparatives. My problem is with αληθης type adjectives. According to Abbot and Mansfield (p.50), the stem of αληθης is αληθες. Huh?
