Bulls were sacrificed to him at major festivals. Beyond that the usual household food sacrifices to him would have been generic sacrificial cakes and the like. Libations of wine, oil, milk, honey, basically any edible liquid. Incense would have been common, the Orphic Hymns recommend styrax and/or frankincense.
