Carr [1]

(in some editions "car") is an Anglicized form of the term Χάῤῥα (v. r. Κάῤῥα ), occurring only in  1 Esdras 5:55, as the name of something given to the Phoenicians for furnishing cedar to rebuild the Temple. Bretschneider (Spicileg. p. 270) thinks we should read Χάραγμα , i.e. Money; perhaps, however, the word is simply a corruption for Κέρμα , Coin (see Fritzsche, Handb. in loc.).
