Dear Eduard:

As gfsomsel wrote, this is connected with the time of “the desecration of the temple by
Antiochus Epiphanes” as recorded in Maccabbees. 

Notice, unlike Genesis 1, this does not say days, rather evening mornings, one for each missed sacrafice. According to a study I read recently, if one includes leap months used to make the calendar match the solar cycle, the time comes to the exact time of the desecration of the temple, to the day.
