In Dinner at Dan, Jonathan S. Greer offers biblical and archaeological facts for sacred feasting on the Levantine web site of Tel Dan from the past due tenth century - mid-8th century BCE. Biblical texts are argued to mirror a Yahwistic and conventional non secular context for those feasts and a clean research of formerly unpublished animal bone, ceramic, and fabric continues to be from the temple advanced at Tel Dan sheds mild on sacrificial prescriptions, cultic realia, and activities inside of this sacred house. Greer concludes that feasts at Dan have been used by the kings of Northern Israel at the start to unify tribal factions and later to augment distinctive social constructions as a society strove to include its tribal prior inside of a monarchic framework.

Their reference to the exception of a large number of terra-cotta figures may be even less significant than they suggest, on the one hand, in that many are only fragmentary and cannot be said to represent bovines for certain (cf. the plates in Holland 1977)—such may also be the case with the “bovine” zoomorphic vessels from an 8th century BCE cultic installation at Samaria (see Crowfoot, Crowfoot, and Kenyon 1957: 78–82; Pl. 12, no. 1).
