Typically the animal to be sacrificed was domesticated rather than wild game except in the case of Artemis , the huntress goddess who preferred game. It would be cleaned, dressed up in ribbons, and taken in a procession to the temple. Altars were almost always outside in front of the temple rather than inside where the cult statue of the god was located. There it would be placed on or beside, in the case of larger animals the altar and some water and barley seeds would be poured on it.
The barley seeds were thrown by those not responsible for the killing of the animal, thus ensuring their direct participation rather than mere observer status. The pouring of water on the head forced the animal to "nod" in agreement to the sacrifice. It was important that the sacrifice not be treated as an act of violence; instead, it must be an act in which everyone was a willing participant: mortals, immortals, and animals. Then the person performing the ritual would pull out a knife machaira that had been hidden in the barley and quickly slit the animal's throat, allowing the blood to drain into a special receptacle.
The entrails, especially the liver, would then be extracted and examined to see whether the gods accepted this sacrifice. If so, then the ritual could proceed. At this point, the sacrificial ritual would become a feast for gods and humans alike.
The animal would be cooked over open flames on the altar and the pieces distributed. To the gods went the long bones with some fat and spices and sometimes wine -- those would continue to be burned so that the smoke would rise up to the gods and goddesses above.
