the ecclesiastical tones(scales) and in general the whole system of Byzantine music is closely related to the ancient greek music system

This example here is pretty classical, but it seems that also the hymns are related "Greek and foreign historians agree that the ecclesiastical tones and in general the whole system of Byzantine music is closely related to the ancient Greek system.[205]". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byzantine_Empire. But as far as I know that was also influenced by the phrygian, a brother tribe of asia minor
