The Avites' idol introduced into Samaria by the Assyrian colonists planted there (2 Kings 17:31). Botta represents a bitch suckling a puppy on a slab at the entrance of a temple at Khorsabad. A colossal figure of a dog was formerly between Berytus and Tripoli. So the rabbis derive N. from nabach, "to bark"; a dogheaded human figure, like the Egyptian Anubis.
