Necta'nabis, Necta'nebus

1. King of Egypt, the first of the three sovereigns of the Sebennite dynasty, succeeded Nepherites on the throne about B. C. 374, and, in the following year, successfully resisted the invasion of the Persian force under Pharnabazus and Iphicrates, owing partly to the natural advantages of the country for defence, and partly to the dilatory and over-cautious conduct of Pharnabazus. Nectanabis died after a reign of ten years, according to Eusebius, and was succeeded by Tachos. (Diod. 15.41-43; Nep. Iph. 2; comp. Rehdantz, Vit. Iph. Chabr. Tim. 4.3; Bunsen, Aegyptens Stelle in der Weltgesch. vol. iii. Urkundenbuch, pp. 40, 41.)
