Menu in Greek:
Menu (or Khem) was an old god of fertility and harvest. Before dynasty one he had his cult in Koptos where two huge statues of him (c. 2,6 m tall) were found in the late 1800s. From the New KIngdom he was mostly the am- algam Amon-Min with plumes and crown of Lower Egypt (left).
His special marks were his erec- ted penis and his arm lifted to a flail. He usually wore a mummy suite or was just a naked man (right). He was also protector for people travelling in the desert. In the spring people had a harvest festival to his honour and he was popular through all times. His toher line of duties were: reproduction, cre- ator of all things, "the maker of gods and men" and god of fertility. He could sometimes have black skin to reflect the mud of the Nile Valley.
