Portuguese is descendants of greek

There are letters written by a Roman geographer named Pomponius Mela that mention the city of Lisbon (Ulyssippo in Latin and Olissipo in Greek) Lisbon was founded by Ulysses. The Greeks were there till the Punic wars were over, then the Romans conquered the Peninsula and remain till the Moors invaded in 711. The Greeks continued to influence the Portuguese culture till the times of the discoveries, you can see that clearly on the book "LUSIADAS" an epic poem by Luís Vaz de Camões
