If I'm reading this right the Greeks were descended from ancient Turks? No wonder they hate each other so much perhaps their story is similar to Ishmael/isaac....

No they were not . Anatolia and modern day Turks are two different people, while it's hard to pin down exactly who founded Athens, the closest I'd look is the European first farmers, I know that's too wide but all we have remaining are Myths and legends, which may hold some grain of truth.
Athens, city of ancient Attica, capital of modern Greece, from Greek Athenai (plural because the city had several distinct parts), traditionally derived from Athena, but probably assimilated from a lost name in a pre-Hellenic language.

There is evidence that the first humans settled in the area of Athens around the 4th Millennium BC. Other than that , it's Founder is Unknown . Maybe it was Settled by a Tribe of People .
