It may not be "evidence," but I was reading something (hope to find it this
weekend among the myriad papers and webpages) about sacrifice, especially city
sacrifice, being a way for the community to bond with the deity.  Emphasis was
on the community, without distinction of gender.  Since (supposedly) one of the
few occasions for women to participate in community activities was religious
celebration, couldn't one assume (I know, dangerous) that women would have
consumed the sacrificial meal along with the men.  This was one of the few
occasions when the ancient Greeks consumed meat. But what about Pythagoreans?
The philosophy, including vegetarianism, was widespread and quite influential;
would those followers have consumed meat at rituals?

I can nowhere find evidence about whether women shared in the meat that
resulted from the sacrifices made at the Panathenaia.  Osborne in his
article on women and sacrife assumes that this was the case, since the
Panathenaia was such a civic/political festival.  Any help here?
