Not the case of course yet interestingly mind-bending to think of Greece as the source of the human race —Diogenes:

Λανθάνουσι δ᾽ αὑτοὺς τὰ τῶν Ἑλλήνων κατορθώματα, ἀφ᾽ ὧν μὴ ὅτι γε φιλοσοφία, ἀλλὰ καὶ γένος ἀνθρώπων ἦρξε, βαρβάροις προσάπτοντες

“These authors forget that the achievements which they attribute to the barbarians belong to the Greeks, with whom not merely philosophy but the human race itself began” (Translation, R.D. Hicks)

It does seem to be the case, however, that the earliest known examples of homo sapiens outside of Africa were found in Greece — Apidima Cave.
