This is very interresting because I can read the morph on xiphos. Maybe 
you find why....

With the new LXX we scripts the strong number when you have a G0 that 
means the word has no strong number in the strong dictionary. By 
instance I noticed this with Nabuchonodosor.
It's some thing to improve. But I notice too, that in the old LXX 
module, greek words had no strong numbers too.
Sorry for the short answer, I'll come back later.
