Hatch and Redpath is a concordance, not a lexicon. The best LXX lexicon 
(incomplete as yet) is T. Muraoka, A Greek-English Lexicon of the 
Septuagint.  This lexicon works with word definitions rather than 
specific glosses (for a review see John Lee in BIOSCS 37 [2004] 
127-139). There is also Lust-Eynikel-Hauspie, A Greek-English Lexicon 2 
vols. This lexicon works with specific glosses rather than word 
definitions (for a review see Dirk Büchner in BIOSCS 37 [2004]
