Agreed. Although some scholars consider Hittite to be a sister language or a dialect of PIE rather than a descendant (not that I agree or disagree with them, I don't have enough information to make my own opinion). I don't know anything about Mycenaean Greek, but how well known is it? Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
