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'

I Know a PHAETHON built 1971 by A.G. Weser as TRAJAN and named PHAETHON between 85-87.

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

The Doxford built ship is here

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