Tires

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Tires : "To tire" the head is to adorn it (2 Kings 9:30). As a noun the word is derived from "tiara," and is the rendering of the Heb. p'er, a "turban" or an ornament for the head (Ezekiel 24:17; R.V., "headtire;" 24:23). In Isaiah 3:18 the word saharonim is rendered "round tires like the moon," and in Judges 8:21,26 "ornaments," but in both cases "crescents" in the Revised Version.
