I see the menu somewhat more elaborate. Excuse the formatting Ive copied a table.

    The Iliad
    I. 313-17

    I. 436-74

    II. 400-1


    II.402-32
    Location of Sacrifice
    seashore
    altar
    huts

    Around victim
    Sacrificer
    Agamemnon
    Odysseus/
    Khruses for Agamemnon
    Akhaians
    Agamemnon
    katarkhtesthai

    Purification

    Hand washing Barley scattering


    Ritual stance Barley scattering
    Recipient
    (Response)
    Apollo
    (smoke rises)
    Apollo
    (he rejoices)
    various
    Zeus
    (receives sacrifice, denies prayer)
    Victim
    Hecatomb (pl.)
    hecatomb


    ox
    III.245-312
    between armies Agamemnon
    Hand washing
    First hairs
    Zeus, Helios, Rivers, Earth
    (denies prayer)
    lambs, boar

Thats the part about animal sacrifice, that makes Greece so beautiful: only a part is burned to the God, the rest is feasted on. Thats what people don't understand, what the musulmen tried to resolve by substituting a goat for Isaac. But what never had been seen outside of isolated communities and in Africa.

Apparently human meat tastes like chicken. Ive heard pig as well. The unknown bitch here demonstrates the combination and thus the ignobility of the sacrifice. Why we invented spears and handguns, sniper rifles and bombs.

To sacrifice a bull means something much more grave than to sacrifice a human.
Not more important, a bull wont complain as much, but more grave, more substantial, richer.

Now, most of Indonesias and Brazils rainforests are decimated due to soy production which is not to accompany sushi but to feed cattle.
I propose that we re instate animal sacrifice - and that we only eat beef that is sacrificed to a god of the Olympus.

We have time. Oxen move slow, especially to the altar.

Apparently Hannibal Lecter here likes poetic slaughter.

I've always wanted to visit Athens, temple ruins of Delphi, and the ruins temple of Zeus.

For the ruins of Delphi I hear that it is a long ardent journey up the mountains.
