Amon was one of the most important of the ancient Egyptian gods, and is commonly identified with Ra. See Ammon.
There are also two people called Amon in the Bible:
2. The king of Judah and son of Manasseh. Albright has dated his reign to 642 - 640 BC, while Thiele offers the dates 643 - 641 BC. He restored idolatry, and set up the images which his father had cast down. Zephaniah (1:4; 3:4, 11) describes his reign as marked by moral depravity.
