In Egyptian mythology, Min was an ancient fertility god, and the patron of traveling caravans. As a god of male sexual potency, he was honored during the coronation rites of the New Kingdom[?] Pharoahs. Festivals in his honor included offerings of wheat and lettuce (an aphrodisiac). He was a son or lover of Isis.

In art, Min was depicted as wearing a crown with feathers and holding his penis, erect, in his left hand while holding a flail[?] in his right.
