The 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia
One of the deities worshiped by the Avites(2 Kings 17:31), who had been imported into the country about Samaria after the fall of that city before Sargon II. in 722 B.C. The Avites worshiped Nibhaz and Tartak, both of which deities are unknown either in the pantheon of the West or the East. Some Hebrew manuscripts read "Nibhan"; and there are several variants in the Greek, none of which, however, gives any clue to the identification of this god.
