Apart from ETR470 brought from Italy I wondered if there are any possible rollin' stock for the Greek HSL. Another words, if Class 120 hauled carriages will also exist in the HSL too and if it is possible to bring more 2nd hand high speed trains like Frecciarossa/Frecciargento/Frecciabianca trains from Italy

As far as I can see, the new/upgraded parts of the Greek network are designed for 200km/h running over relatively small distances.
There are many types of train that can run at that speed without acquiring true high speed stock, for example Railjets.
I don't know if there would be much advantage in using a tilting Pendolino design for the older and slower sections of the network, as in, say, Portugal or Czechia.

Unless they're buying old, 2nd hand, stock, then it won't be any of the Pendolino types listed

According to wiki,
uncited claims on wikipedia are not to be trusted! But it is noted that previous Trenitalia plans have involved sending Greece secondhand stock. But at this point it would be likely that ETR500s would be over 30 years old by the tie they ended up in Greece

It will be ETR.470 Pendolinos from Italy, unless they change the plans, but that's what it is at the moment.

I think its a terrible to signal to Greece to give them hand me downs. I am sure FSI can afford new trains for Greece ad a long term investment.
