Who do the gods sacrifice to?
I recently came across this review of Kimberley Christine Patton's book, Religion of the Gods; Ritual, Paradox, and Reflexivity (2009). In her book, Patton takes up the phenomenon of Classical depictions of the gods pouring libations and participating in sacrifices.
The cultic action of the gods which is depicted most frequently is libations, but it is not limited to libations.
