A study of the texts and artifacts which pertain to the background and development of the cult of Min. One of the oldest and most important gods, his primary role was related to the perpetuation of agricultural prosperity, and the renewal of kingship powers. Examining material from early predynastic periods onward, this text seeks to assess chronologically the functional aspects of the cult as part of an overall socio-political order, both in the capital and in the provinces.

Min (Egyptian mnw) is an ancient Egyptian god whose cult originated in predynastic times (4th millennium BCE). He was represented in many different forms, but was often represented in male human form, shown with an erect penis which he holds in his left hand and an upheld right arm holding a flail. As Khem or Min, he was the god of reproduction; as Khnum, he was the creator of all things, 'the maker of gods and men.'. Seller Inventory # YYY-0471-7320
