11. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
No
   or No-A'mon, the home of Amon, the name of Thebes, the ancient
   capital of what is called the Middle Empire, in Upper or
   Southern Egypt. "The multitude of No" (Jer. 46:25) is more
   correctly rendered, as in the Revised Version, "Amon of No",
   i.e., No, where Jupiter Amon had his temple. In Ezek. 30:14, 16
   it is simply called "No;" but in ver. 15 the name has the Hebrew
   Hamon prefixed to it, "Hamon No." This prefix is probably the
   name simply of the god usually styled Amon or Ammon. In Nah. 3:8
   the "populous No" of the Authorized Version is in the Revised
   Version correctly rendered "No-Amon."
   
     It was the Diospolis or Thebes of the Greeks, celebrated for
   its hundred gates and its vast population. It stood on both
   sides of the Nile, and is by some supposed to have included
   Karnak and Luxor. In grandeur and extent it can only be compared
   to Nineveh. It is mentioned only in the prophecies referred to,
   which point to its total destruction. It was first taken by the
   Assyrians in the time of Sargon (Isa. 20). It was afterwards
   "delivered into the hand" of Nebuchadnezzar and Assurbani-pal
   (Jer. 46:25, 26). Cambyses, king of the Persians (B.C. 525),
   further laid it waste by fire. Its ruin was completed (B.C. 81)
   by Ptolemy Lathyrus. The ruins of this city are still among the
   most notable in the valley of the Nile. They have formed a great
   storehouse of interesting historic remains for more than two
   thousand years. "As I wandered day after day with ever-growing
   amazement amongst these relics of ancient magnificence, I felt
   that if all the ruins in Europe, classical, Celtic, and
   medieval, were brought together into one centre, they would fall
   far short both in extent and grandeur of those of this single
   Egyptian city." Manning, The Land of the Pharaohs.
