Who were the ancestors of modern day Greeks?
The Ancestors of modern Greeks are the Ancient Greeks. Some Greeks however, have got mixed ancestory as with every country, but on the whole, according to DNA testing as recent as 2012, about 90% of modern Greeks have the same DNA as that of the Ancient Greeks and are therefore descendants of the Ancient Greeks.
it depends on what type of Greeks are you talking about

All modern day organisms have an ancestor in the Jurassic. Identifying which fossil animals are the direct ancestors of any modern day animal is impossible since fossils don't preserve DNA. However comparing the bones of fossil animals and those of modern day animals, family trees can be hypothesised. With modern day animals their DNA can be compared to produce much more accurate results.

First came the hunter-gatherers and then the farmers. After farmers, the people on the island of Crete became civilized and thus the Minoans came to existence, becoming the first Ancient Greeks. So basically, the hunter gatherers and farmers who lived in Greece are the Ancient Greeks ancestors.
Modern horses evolved from perissodactyl ancestors (hoofed mammals with an odd number of toes). One of the earliest ancestors of the modern horse was hyracotherium. It was more or less the size of a terrier and had odd toes but no real hooves yet. Which each successive species the middle toe got larger and larger while the four other toes got smaller, and that is how modern horses have one big hoof on each foot.
The ancestors of modern humans are land mammal, primates or chimpanzees. These primates first appeared 30 million years ago, these are also known as hominids.
Ancestors of horses were bred to make horses. All of the ancestors of modern horses were horses. Some equines that are not Equus ferus caballus are still around but they were not ancestors.
No, this is a common misunderstanding. Neanderthals did live at the same time as our ancestors did and they also shared a common ancestry with modern humans however, they are not an ancestor of modern humans. They are in fact a different species.
