Similarity with Nebahaz
The name Nybbas has remarkable resemblance with "Nebahaz", one of several deities protecting the individual cities of Samaria who are mentioned specifically by name in the Bible, in 2 Kings 17:31. In his "Encyclopédie Théologique", or "Dictionnaire ... de la Bible", Augustin Calmet asserts that Nebahaz and Nebachas are one and the same and associates them with Nebo, another name for the god Nabu.
In the In Nomine RPG, Nybbas is the Demon Prince of Media.
