Subject:    "bar"?

I can't find an obvious OED meaning for "bar" in the following sentence by Sir 
Thomas North, in his translation of Plutarch's _Life of Julius Caesar_:

But whilst he was preparing for this voyage, he attempted to cut the bar of the 
strait of Peloponnesus, in the market-place where the city of Corinth standeth.

Any ideas?
