ANTILUTRON simply means "ransom" (i.e. ransom payment). It's a synonym for
LUTRON. The ANTI part brings into focus the idea that I hand over the money,
and you hand over the hostage(s). In other words, ANTI emphasizes the trade
aspect: this in exchange for that. The word "corresponding" is not a helpful
gloss, in my opinion.
