Did the greco-romans realize they were related to the other indo-europeans?

The V letter being dropped from words is a byproduct of the Script.

WIN ( Mycenae)
VIN ( Latin)
OIN ( Greek)
IIN ( Phoenician)

The word 'And' in Punic is W, always attached to the prefix of a word, so every digamma
word would be "and wine" or "and house".

The symbol for the AND is the same particle used in Spanish



Y

Ϝἶν (Wine) - LINEAR A 2500–1450 BCE


Old English win "wine," from Proto-Germanic *winam (source also of Old Saxon, Old Frisian, Old High German win, Old Norse vin, Dutch wijn, German Wein), an early borrowing from Latin vinum "wine," from PIE *woin-o-, related to words for "wine" in Greek (oinos), Armenian, Hittite, and non-Indo-European Georgian and West Semitic (Arabic wain, Hebrew yayin), probably from a lost Mediterranean language word *win-/*woin- "wine."

Supposedly they did. All indoeuropeans worshipped the gods of similar pantheons, didn't they?
