PN – accusative masculine proper noun → Pharaoh

Although the noun ends in "dhamma" , it is considered in the position of nasb (accusative) because it is the "addressee" following a vocative particle:

Refer to Bahjat, Vol. 4, page 48.

يا: أداة النداء فرعون: منادى مبني على الضم في محل النصب

This rule is correctly stated in 17:102:14
