The word PIPI is probably a "graphic" transcription, so to speak. In square Aramaic script the tetragram may resemble the the Greek letters pipi. It is interesting that in the marigin of Syriac manuscripts of the Syro-Hexapla we find PIPI and HEHE (and occasionally YHWH) in Syrian letters. This could suggest that som Greek manuscripts used as Vorlage had tetragrams in Aramaic script (PIPI) and others had tetragrams in Old Hebrew script (HEHE).
I do not have the texts of Aquila, Symmachus, and Theodotion where I am at present, but I remember that Theodotion translated EHYE with Greek future.

Would you mind me asking you what does PIPI mean in relation to Aquila/Theodotian/Symmachus rendering of the Tetragrammaton?
While you're at it, can you tell me how they translated the ehyeh-asher-ehyeh and ehyeh of Ex.3:14a and Ex.3:14b respectively?
