Detienne's talk of levels is no doubt appealing from a Christianising perspective, particularly an Orthodox Christian one, where all can partake of the blessed bread (antidoron), only baptised Orthodox can partake of the body and blood of Christ, and only the (male) priest can make the sacrifice, but it is surely entirely inappropriate in the Greek setting.
