It is true that the form ANTILHMPTWR is later than ANTILHPTWR; I think it
may be worth noting that in this instance--and probably in others also--the
root of compounded verbs in -ANW that commonly take presents with a nasal
infix (e.g., TUGCANW from TUC, LAMBANW from LAB, MANQANW from MAQ) for the
purpose of forming agent and action nouns was drawn from the present-stem
with its nasal infix; hence PROSWPOLHMPTHS, PROSWPOLHMYIS, PROSWPOLHMPTEW.
And just as ANTILHMPTWR is a later formm of ANTILHPTWR, so also is
ANTILHMYIS a later form of ANTILHYIS.
