OriginEdit

The Maccabees were the leaders of a Jewish rebel army that took control of Judea, which at the time had been a province of the Seleucid Empire. They founded the Hasmonean dynasty, reasserted the Jewish religion, partly by forced conversion, expanded the boundaries of Judea by conquest and reduced the influence of Hellenism and Hellenistic Judaism.

During the Maccabean Revolt, the victorious Maccabees’ could only find enough oil to supply the menorah for one night, but it miraculously lasted for eight nights, now known today as the Jewish holiday Hanukkah.

EffectsEdit

This menorah, when lit, can multiply even the smallest drop of oil to supply itself, essentially becoming a self-sufficient light source. Extinguishing the flames, however, in turn will make all things deriving from Greece (people, items, symbols) in the general area to ignite. And the Menorah is really picky about that, it must be warned.
