It sounds like an analogue clock, but I can't quite get everything to connect.

I got the impression of musical notation/sheet music, but I can't fit all the pieces together, either. I'm stumped.

I was thinking music, but I don't get the Greek thing.

The siege of the Maccabees is the Greeks reference, though the Syrians were involved...

A Menorah. Each candle lit on each of the eight nights by the central candle.

Well, that actually is music-related this time, no?

Well I figured since you guys honed in on that, last riddle, I'd run with it.

It's been a while, so I'll go ahead and explain it.

Seven words at eight points represents Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, and Do again. Seven words, one twice, arranged on a scale.

Four and For a G. Four-four time with a G clef. The scale in question doesn't REQUIRE four four time, but it typically uses it and it gave me a clever way to phrase it.

Two and Six lay on the ground... flat. So Re and La are both flats rather than normal or sharp notes.

Precocious Child, the Fifth. Fifth Note is Sharp and contains the common American name of the scale: Perfect Minor Fifth. Because a kid is a minor and they should be precocious. >.>

So it's the Hejaz scale, the perfect minor fifth.

Since no one got it I'll throw the next riddle up in the air for whoever wants to make it.

I was way off. I thought it was just clever ways of stating common time signatures. 7/8, 4/4, and then I got lost.
