What does it mean to say that an allele of one gene is epistatic to that of another?..

Answer / uvika

epistatic is Interaction between no allelic genes, in which
one gene supresses the expression of another gene.

So if one gene is epistatic to another it means that first
is dominant to the other non-allelic gene present at some
other loci.
