The mishnah in Tamid 3:1 and Yoma 2:3 says there was a daily lottery for who would bring the (morning) Korban Tamid.
There was another Korban Tamid every day.

How was the person for the second Tamid selected? Was there a second lottery?


The gemara on Yoma 26a explains that there was just one lottery that covered both services:

א"ר יוחנן אין מפייסין על תמיד של בין הערבים אלא כהן שזכה בו בשחרית זוכה בו ערבית

Rabbi Yoḥanan said: They did not hold a separate lottery for the slaughtering and sacrifice of the daily afternoon offering. Rather, the same priest who won a particular privilege for the morning offering wins the privilege for the corresponding task in the evening, i.e., for the afternoon service.

In this way, the morning lottery covered both services.
