ithyphallic (ith-uh-FAL-ik) adjective
1. Of or relating to the phallus carried in procession in ancient Bacchic festivals.
[From Late Latin ithyphallicus, from Greek ithyphallikos, from ithyphallos, from ithys (straight) + phallos (phallus).]
"Luxor Temple is more comprehensible than the vaster ruins at Karnak.
It was also dedicated to Amun - but to a different manifestation of
the same god, associated with fertility and often shown in ithyphallic form."
