I have been reading Genesis in the LXX expanding my vocabulary and 
understanding of structure with the help of a couple lexicons.  I have come 
opun a form which I cannot find in the lexicins though.  If anyone could help 
enlighten me on this on I will greatly appreciate it.  It is HLATTONOUTO.  It 
looks like aorist middle indicative, but I'm not finding the form or the 
possible roots that make sense to me.  Could someone give me clue on this?

I would suggest that this is an Attic form of ELASSOW "to become smaller, be 
lessened, suffer loss, be depreciated." It is most likely a pf. mid. 3 s.
