some architectural ornament. (1.) Heb. kaphtor (Ex. 25:31-36),
occurring in the description of the candlestick. It was an
ornamental swell beneath the cups of the candlestick, probably
an imitation of the fruit of the almond.

(2.) Heb. peka'im, found only in 1 Kings 6:18 and 7:24, an
ornament resembling a small gourd or an egg, on the cedar
wainscot in the temple and on the castings on the brim of the
brazen sea.
