Three-fourths of the original hieroglyphics inscription appears to have survived, and counterclockwise reads: Joseph said it represents God sitting upon his throne.
Egyptologists say that this is the god "Min. His erect penis is clearly shown. It's interesting to note that in some earlier editions of the BOA the church erased the penis so it wouldn't look pornographic.
It has since been restored in our current versions. But isn't it somewhat disturbing that Joseph would say that this pagan god with his exposed penis is our Heavenly Father?
Note, even LDS apologists admit that this figure, with the erect penis, is the god Min. A seated ithyphallic god with a hawk's tail, holding aloft a flail.

It was placed under the person's head, and was to aid them in making the journey through the netherworld by bathing their bodies in light. Many examples of this kind of hypocephalus are to be found. One of the many pagan gods pictured in this hypocephalus is shown above as it appears in the current edition of the LDS Scriptures.
Egyptologists tell us that this is the god "Min. Min is the god of the procreative forces of nature. Joseph Smith told us that the Egyptian god Min was in point of fact the one true God. And what is Min doing?
