Arts & Acts

Round cakes called summanalia, made of flour, milk and honey and shaped as wheels, were offered to the god of nocturnal thunder, Summanus, as a token of propitiation: the wheel might be a solar symbol. Summanus also received a sacrifice of two black oxen. Dark animals were typically offered to chthonic deities.
