I was talking about the languages in the Mediterranean area as a
group, including Greek. But - I did not mean to say that every
feature applied to each language in equal degree. And yes, many of
these features appared allready in classical greek.

And I indeed listed evidence. I listet a set of features common to
AA languages and most IE languages in this area.

Each of these features appared frist inn AA, and then Greek or
Romance got the same feature in turn.

If this is not evidence pointing to an influence from AA to IE, you
are in denial of something you do not like to hear for some reason.
