The Aeolians (Greek: Αἰολεῖς) were one of the four major ancient Greek tribes comprising Ancient Greeks (along with the Achaeans, Dorians and Ionians). Their name derives from Aeolus, the mythical ancestor of the Aeolic branch and son of Hellen, the mythical patriarch of the Greek nation. The dialect of ancient Greek they spoke is referred to as Aeolic. According to Herodotus the Aeolians were originally Pelasgianshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeolians
The Greek city states of Smyrna and Phocaea were for a time part of the kingdom of Pergamon and populated by the Aeolians who were descendants of the Pelasgians. The Greeks of Smyrna and Phocaea apparently were driven from Thessaly and founded the cities in Anatolia.
The name Pelasgians (Greek: Πελασγοί, Pelasgoí; singular: Πελασγός, Pelasgós) was used by some ancient Greek writers to refer to populations that either were the ancestors of the Greeks or preceded the Greeks in Greece, "a hold-all term for any ancient, primitive and presumably indigenous people in the Greek world". In general, "Pelasgian" has come to mean more broadly all the indigenous inhabitants of the Aegean Sea region and their cultures before the advent of the Greek languagehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelasgians
From Wikipedia: "The ancient Greek word for "sea", pelagos, comes from the same root, *plāk-, as the Doric word plagos, "side" (which is flat), appearing in *pelag-skoi. Ernest Klein therefore simply interprets the same reconstructed form as "the sea men", where the sea is the flat. In other words Sea People. It was believed by Homer that they had come from Egypt."
The Egyptian thing also caught my eye as I am a difference 8/18 from the available markers from King Tut.
