Yigal,

 >>There, "mizan el zan" is rendered "ek toutou eis touto",  
apparently preserving
 >>a Hebrew "mizeh el-zeh" - "from this to that" or "from here to  
there".

I went off searching for Persian so quickly I missed the obvious. The  
Aramaic masculine demonstrative pronoun is ZNH/DNH which does occur  
sometimes in a short form as ZN, thus the LXX may be translating ZN  
as ZNH, rather than preserving Hebrew ZH.
