Whenever someone sacrificed an ox to Athena, he would also sacrifice to Pandora[1] a sheep with an ox; and the offering used to be called an after-the-ox.

Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on this term in Lycurgus fr. 35 Conomis.
[1] So, delightfully, the transmitted text. The true, mundane reading (from Harpok., quoting Philochorus FGrH 328 F10) is Pandrosos, daughter of Kekrops (pi 182).
