Anyone help me find history/owners of Greek general cargo vessel called 'Phaethon'. She was built around 1970/1971, about 12,000 tons.

Correction: I think the name should be spelled 'Faethon'

Thanks.

This seems to be about right. Looks like a version of an SD14

The SD14 in David Hopcroft's post is the Brazilian built ex LLoyd Genova that only became Phaethon in 1989
