[B-Greek] Augment in participle (John 1:6)

Dear B-Greekers,

I'm puzzled by the construction of the perfect participle of apostellw (ἀποστέλλω) in John 1:6.

Here the word is rendered apestalmenos (ἀπεσταλμένος).

However, I understood that only the indicative takes the augment, so I would have expected apostalmenos (ἀποσταλμένος).

Clearly I'm missing something and I was hoping that somebody might be able to suggest what that might be.

Thanks and Regards,
Murray Hogg,
