From Manners and Customs of the Bible:

The cor or homer was used for either dry or liquid measure. The liquid cor is supposed to have contained seventy-five gallons. The dry cor is supposed to have contained eight bushels and a pint. It is mentioned in 1 Kings 4:2222And Solomon's provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour, and threescore measures of meal, (1 Kings 4:22) and Luke 16:77Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. (Luke 16:7), in both of which places it is rendered “measures.”
