That is not an augment but the manner in which the perfect reduplication is 
rendered for the verb ἀποστέλλω APOSTELLW.

… search for truth, hear truth, 
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, 
defend the truth till death.

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,
