In Greek music theory it was based on the Phrygian tetrachord: a series of rising intervals of a whole tone, followed by a semitone, followed by a whole tone.
Thus, in mediaeval and modern music, the Phrygian mode is a minor musical mode or diatonic scale and may be constructed from the major scale starting on the third scale degree.
Phrygian major is also known as the Spanish gypsy scale, and is often used in flamenco music.

 Backdirt Summer/Spring 2000
From ancient sources and Phrygian inscriptions we know that the main deity of the Phrygians was Matar, “Mother.” The nature of this deity is highly debated.
Since “Kubileya,” in Phrygian, refers to a topographic feature meaning “of the mountains,” it is appropriate that many of her sanctuaries are located in mountainous areas just as we find at Dümrek.
The project at Dümrek is investigating the use of this sanctuary during the Iron Age and its relation to the greater Phrygian landscape.

This pattern of intervals: S-T-T-T-S-T-T is the characteristic of the Phrygian mode, and is a Minor mode.
Because the mode is characterised by its interval structure, you can start on any note and progress with the same intervals to produce a Phrygian mode in that 'key'.

 ATTIS : Phrygian vegetation god, eunuch ; mythology : ATYS
ATTIS was a Phrygian vegetation god, the consort of the great Mother Kybele.
The account of Hermesianax goes on to say that, on growing up, Attis migrated to Lydia and celebrated for the Lydians the orgies of the Mother; that he rose to such honor with her that Zeus, being wroth at it, sent a boar to destroy the tillage of the Lydians.
She wanted to keep him as her shrine’s guardian, and said, ‘Desire to be a boy always.’ He promised what was asked and declared, ‘If I lie, let the Venus [Aphrodite] I cheat with be my last.’ He cheats, and in the Nympha Sagaritis stops being what he was: the goddess’ wrath punished him.

The Phrygian scale is the third scale in our "white-keys-on-the-piano"-modes - the church modes.
The tonic is in E, all the tones being E, F, G, A, B, C and D. This minor scale has a Spanish touch over it, although it´s minor third makes it less "exotic" than, for example, the major third of the Gypsy scale.
However, one interesting point to "audiolize" this is for example to combine a E Phrygian melody with a chord based on the tonic from another one of the six modes left.

 iBreatheMusic Forums - iii function as I chord-Phrygian progressions...
Are there any standard phrygian progressions or iii functioning as I (are they the same thing?) progressions, or what is the logic behind creating chord progressions with other scale degrees functioning as the I? curiousgeorge
Also, because phrygian lacks concrete resolutions(there is a minor chord where the V should be), any chord progressions that you come up with to fit it will tend to be modal, as opposed to tonal.
Could somebody list the inherent properties of the modes(ie, "...phrygian does not have concrete resolutions..."-Debaser), given that I know Lydian has a dreamy sound and a #4, Aeolian is minor and sad and has a b3,b6,b7 etc etc...
