Holman Bible Dictionary
(theebess) The capital of Egypt's Upper Kingdom for most of its history (about 2000-661 B.C.). The city waned only during the brief Hyksos period (about 1750-1550 B.C.). Thebes (called No in KJV) was the center of worship for the god Amon, a chief deity in Egyptian religion. Majestic temples remain as monuments to the city's dedication to Amon. See Egypt
