Dear Kevin,
     The verse that you refer to is listed as 3 Kgs 7:23 in Brenton's
version of the LXX. He translates:

And he made the sea, ten cubits from one rim to the other, the same was
completely circular round about: its height was five cubits, and its
circumference thirty-three cubits."

So he refers TO AUTO ("the same") back to the "sea." You ask about the
passive participle of SUNAGW, SUNHGMENH, translated as "circumference." The
similar adverb SUNHGMENWS means "collectively." The passive of SUNAGW can
refer to summing up (numbers), obtaining (a result), giving (a quotient),
and yielding (a fraction or a result).
