God of Fertility, along with his wife/girlfriend/significant other [SATET].That's plant fertility, animal fertility and human fertility. Rather seedy however you look at it.
He offers fertilizer by the bucketload, does amazing things with bullocks and has a special deal on Viagra. Not bad for someone wrapped from head to toe in mummy bandages. He may even be KHNUM in disguise.
The Greeks identified him with PAN, although we're not sure if they managed to peek under the bandages.
