You can use Hatch & Redpath's concordance to the Septuagint (LXX), but I
don't know how much it would help your search.  The classics scholars on
the list can probably be more helpful in this area, but I imagine that
"the word agape first came into use in greek" long before the LXX was
translated.  But for what it's worth, I just ran a quick search of
anything starting with AGAP or HGAP and got 340 occurences in the LXX.
