Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נִינְוֵה pr.n. Nineveh, the ancient metropolis of Assyria, situated on the eastern bank of the Tigris, at the same place where Mosul now stands on the western bank, Genesis 10:11, 12 Genesis 10:12; Isaiah 37:37; Nahum 2:9; Jonah 1:2, 3:3. By the Greeks and Romans it was commonly called Ninus after the builder (Herod. i. 193; ii. 101; Diod. 2:3); in Ammianus, however (xviii. 16), Nineve. As to its site see the remarks of Bochart, Phaleg. lib. iv. cap. 20; also the travels of Niebuhr, vol. ii. p. 353 (who found in that place a village called Nunia), and d’Anville, l’Euphrate, p. 80; compare Rosenm. Bibl. Alterthumsk. i. 2, p. 94, 114.
