Dictionary

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Hanes
A place in Egypt mentioned only in Isaiah 30:4 in connection with a reproof given to the Jews for trusting in Egypt. It was considered the same as Tahpanhes, a fortified town on the eastern frontier, but has been also identified as Ahnas-el-Medeeneh, 70 miles from Cairo.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Hanes
(hay' neess) Egypt place name. City to which Israel sent ambassadors in time of Isaiah to seek military and economic help (Isaiah 30:4 ). Isaiah condemned the government policy of seeking Egyptian help rather than trusting Yahweh. Hanes has often been located at Heracleopolis Magna in southern Egypt just north of the Nile Delta, modern Ahnas. This would be a natural parallel to northern Zoan or Tanis. See Zoan . A more likely identification, however, is Heracleopolis Parva, modern Hanes, almost directly east of Tanis and much more likely to be the goal of Judah's ambassador's than the distant southern Heracleopolis. Ashurbanipal of Egypt also mentions Hanes in listing Egyptian cities.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Hanes
Isaiah 30:4, the same as Tahpanhes or Daphne, a fortress on the N.E. frontier of Egypt, to which the Jews sent ambassadors with presents for the reigning Pharaoh (perhaps Zet or Sethos of the 23rd dynasty), as also to the neighbouring Zoan his capital. Gesenius, less probably, makes Hanes to be Heracleopolis, W. of the Nile in central Egypt.
Hitchcock's Bible Names - Hanes
Banishment of grace
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Hanes
HANES is associated with Zoan in a difficult context, Isaiah 30:4 . Some would place it in Lower Egypt, with Anysis in Herodotus, and Khininshi in the annals of Ashurbanipal; but there can be little doubt that it is the Egyptian Hnçs (Heracleopolis Magna) on the west side of the Nile, just south of the Fayyum. Hnçs was apparently the home of the family from which the 22nd Dyn. arose, and the scanty documents of succeeding dynasties show it to have been of great importance: in the 25th and 26th Dyns. ( c [1] . b.c. 715 600) the standard silver of Egypt was specifically that of the treasury of Harshafe, the ram-headed god of Hnçs, and during the long reign of Psammetichus i. (c [1] . 660 610) Hnçs was the centre of government for the whole of Upper Egypt. The LXX [3] does not recognize the name of the city, and shows a wide divergence of reading: ‘for there are in Tanis princes, wicked messengers.’

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Hanes
City in Egypt to which the ambassadors of Israel were sent when they trusted in Egypt instead of in Jehovah. Isaiah 30:4 . It was for long identified with Tahpanhes on the eastern frontier, but is now supposed to be the ancient Heracleopolis Magna, identified with Ahnas el Medeeneh, about seventy miles S.W. of Cairo.
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Hanes
A town on the frontiers of Ethiopia. Some have thought it the same as Tahapanes. (See Isaiah 30:4; Jeremiah 2:16)
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Hanes
