Festival of Min

Min, Festival of

Min was an ancient Egyptian god, often identified with Amun and Horus. As the god of fertility and rain, he was frequently represented holding a thunderbolt. Ancient Egyptians also associated Min with a bull, in which form he was also believed to be present at the annual harvest festival held in his honor. There were processions at the temple in Luxor, where the god also may have been offered lettuce, considered an aphrodesiac.
