Homer (לֶמֶר, cho'mer, a heap, as in Ex 8:14), a Hebrew measure of capacity for things dry, containing. ten baths (Le 27:16; Nu 11:32; Eze 45:11,13-14). In later writers it is usually termed a COR. SEE MEASURE.

The le'thek (לֶתֶך, vessel for pouring; Sept. ἡμίκορος, Vulg. corus dimidius, English. Vers. "half a homer") was a measure for grain of half the capacity of the homer or cor, as seems probable from the only passage where it is mentioned (Ho 3:3). See Stud. u. Krit. 1846, 1, 123.
