LEH LXX lexicon offers for ANTILHMPTWR:
2 Sm 22:3; Ps 3:4; 17(18):3; 41(42):10; 45(46):8
helper, protector ; neol.
It's worth noting that ANTILHMPTWR is a typical agent-noun with the nominal
suffix -TWR attached to the simple root form of ANTILAMBANW, for which LSJ
at Perseus offers (II.2):
2. help, take part with, assist, ouk antilêpsesth'; E.Tr.464 ; of persons,
a. Hellêrôn to take their part, D.S.11.13; a. tôn asthenountôn Act.Ap.20.35
, etc.: abs., Th.7.70:-- also in Pass., anteilêmmenê having received help,
BGU1105.21 (Aug.), al.
This is a useful procedure for making intelligent guesses when you can't
find an entry in a lexicon: work out what the verbal root involved is and
look up that verb in the lexicon.
