Min was an ancient Egyptian God, with a flail raised in his right hand. On his head he wore a crown decorated with two tall, straight plumes. He was worshipped as the God of roads and protector of those who travelled through the desert. Min was also a God of fertility and growth, and a protector of crops. His main feast was known as the Feast of the Steps. Seated on his step, the God received the first sheaf of the harvest.
