Volume II Plate 8 - The Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu (Bas Reliefs) ~ The Great Temple at Medinet Habu contained more than 75,000 sq ft of decorated surfaces across its walls

The top row of illustrations depicts a prince of Ramesses II; an invading Asiatic warrior; a Libyan warrior; and two more sons of Ramesses II.

The fellow with the large hat in the lower row is the God Amun as the ichthyphallic god Min; followed by an invading Asiatic warrior; then by Ramesses II making an incense offering over an image of a doorway; and finally yet another son of Ramesses II and the god Ra-Horakhty, one of the manifestations of Horus.

Lettuce was Min's sacred plant, and an aphrodisiac to the ancient Egyptians - this particular species of lettuce was tall, straight and secreted a milky substance when pressed.
