In Gen. 1:11 (Rahlfs), why is the ptcp SPEIRON neuter? I would have expected
fem since the subj (and obj) of the main verb (BLASTHSATW) is fem. The 2d
ptcp. (POIOUN) is also neut., though that might be influenced by XULON? (Or
am I just too sleepy this morning and overlooking something obvious?!)

BLASTHSATW hH GH BOTANHN CORTOU, SPEIRON SPERMA KATA GENOS KAI KAQ'
hOMOIOTHTA, KAI XULON KARPIMON POIOUN KARPON...
