kar'-tan (qartan):

A city in the territory of Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites (Joshua 21:32). It is called Kiriathaim in 1 Chronicles 6:76. Kartan may be a contraction of this. Cheyne (EB, under the word) suggests that both names may be corruptions from "Chinnereth." Neither is mentioned in Joshua 19:32,38, in the list of Naphtalite cities, while Chinnereth is.
