Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נֹא Ezekiel 30:14, 15 Ezekiel 30:15, 16 Ezekiel 30:16 Jerem. 46:25 fully, נֹא־אָמוֹן Nehemiah 3:8 [No], pr.n. of the Egyptian Thebes, or Diospolis, the very ancient and celebrated metropolis of Upper Egypt; called by Homer, ἑκατόμπυλος (Il. ix. 383), 140 stadia in circuit, and standing on both sides of the Nile, remarkable for the multitude and the magnificence of its temples, obelisks, and statues (see Diod. Sic., xvii. 1), laid waste in the time of Nahum the prophet, (probably by the Assyrians), a little before Nineveh (see Nah. loc. cit.); afterwards partially restored by the Ptolemies, and even by the Romans. Its very splendid ruins, which are called by the names of the neighbouring villages, Medinat Abu, Luxor, Kurna, are figured in Descr. de l’Egypte, t. ii. iii. The LXX. in Eze. render it Διόσπολις, in Nah. μερὶς Ἀμμών; this latter seems to be a literal interpretation of the Egyptian name; נאֹ, Egypt. ⲛⲟⲍ, i.e. σχοῖνος, a measuring line; then a part, a share measured out; and אָמוֹן, ⲁⲙⲟⲩⲛ (Jupiter) Ammon, see אָמוֹן No. III, hence נאֹ אָמוֹן the portion, possession of the god Ammon, who was there worshipped with much splendour. See Jablonskii Opuscula, ed. te Water, t. i. page 163-168; compare Champollion, l’Egypte sous les Pharaons, t. i. p. 199, seq.
