  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Cor 
  This  Hebrew  word  untranslated  denotes  a  round  vessel  used  as  a 
  measure  both  for  liquids  and  solids.  It  was  equal  to  one  homer, 
  and  contained  ten  ephahs  in  dry  and  ten  baths  in  liquid  measure 
  (Ezek.  45:14).  The  Rabbins  estimated  the  cor  at  forty-five 
  gallons,  while  Josephus  estimated  it  at  about  eighty-seven.  In  1 
  Kings  4:22;  5:11;  2  Chr.  2:10;  27:5,  the  original  word  is 
  rendered  "measure."
