Char'cus (Βαρχουέ; Vulg. Barcus), given (1 Esdr. 5:32) as one of the heads of the Temple servants that returned from Babylon; a corruption for Barkos (q.v.) in the lists of Ezra (2:53) and Nehemiah (7:55), possibly by a change of ב into כ. But it does not appear whence the translators of the A. V. got their reading of the name. In the edition of 1611 it is "Chareus."
