CARABASION kăr ə bā’ zhĭ ən, a name appearing only in the LXX VS of Ezra (1 Esd 9:34). A reads Gr. Καραβασίων, while B reads Gr. Καραβασειω̂ν. The name is omitted in the canonical Ezra 10:34-37 which is the parallel passage. No known etymology is apparent.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

One of the sons of Baani (1 Esdras 9:34) who had married foreign wives, during the captivity. The name is allowed to be corrupt; it seems to be represented by Meremoth in the list of Ezr 10:36.
