Nimlot (transliteration: nmlt) is an ancient Egyptian non-dynastic local Pharaoh during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled from Hermopolis over a large territory in Upper Egypt. Nimlot was an Upper Egyptian contemporary of the Nubian ruler Piye of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty, as well as Peftjauawybastet of Heracleopolis and Ini IV of Thebes. In Lower Egypt, Tefnakhte I established the 24th Dynasty.

Nimlot came to rule as a local kinglet sometime after the collapse of the 23rd Dynasty in Upper Egypt. He was later subdued by Piye's conquest of Egypt as the Nubian ruler expanded northward. Nimlot appears on Piye's Year 21 Gebel Barkal Victory Stela behind his wife, Nestjenet. Nimlot remained in power at Hermopolis as a vassal ruler.
