And what about a word like ANTITUPOS?  Here the relationship with  
correspondence is evident.  BDAG defines ANTITUPOS as "pertaining to that  which 
corresponds to some[thing] else, adj, corresponding to."
 
Though the word ANTILUTRON itself is rare, I think the context in which it  
is used in the NT gives legitimacy to the concept of correspondence, and  that 
correspondence is more than just a suggestion.  .

For what  nuance if any the prefix ANTI is likely to add to LUTRON, it
wouldn't hurt  to compare what happens to the meaning of various familiar
verbs when the  prefix ANTI is added to them. 

See, for example:

BALLW and  ANTIBALLW
GRAFW and ANTIGRAFW
KALEW and ANTIKALEW
METREW and  ANTIMETREW

All of these gain some sense of "in exchange" or "in  return". Given that
LUTROW means to buy someone out of captivity, and  LUTRON means the price of
buying them out of captivity, there is already an  implicit "this (money or
something valuable) in return for that" (the  person or persons held in
captivity) in the whole notion of ransoming. The  prefix ANTI fits right in.
