For example those who were in Greece before the mycenaeans are also Greeks, no ?

 

Evidently, yes.

This is interesting:

God bless DNA sampling. So if you read this, the ethnic stock of those in Greece & those living in Anatolia was much the same. So does that make the Trojans Greek? Sorry, Paskal, I’m not yet convinced.

So who were peoples such as the (supposedly) non-Greek Pelasgians? Evidently, in islands such as Lemnos, non-Greek Pelasgians, with a totally different language, lived into Classical times.
