polytheist extractions

Xenophon, Oeconomicus 9.6-10

“After we had gone through these rooms we sorted the contents by type. We first began by putting together the things we used for sacrifices. After that we separated the fancy clothing that women wore at festivals, the men’s clothing for festivals and war, bedding for the women’s quarters, bedding for the men’s quarters, women’s
shoes, and men’s shoes … And we divided all this equipment into two sets, those that are used daily, and those used only for feasts … When we divided all the contents by types, we carried each thing to its proper place … Whatever we use for festivals or for entertaining guests or at rare intervals we handed over to the housekeeper.” – Xenophon, Oeconomicus 9.6-10
