Silybum?

The flowers look too small and the involucral bracts not spikey enough for Silybum, but cannot supply an alternative.

Thanks

Thanks Cicuta! I've asked a local Athenian expert to review all my wildflower photos from Greece and hope that he will be able to recognise the majority of them, including this one. I'll amend all the flower info as I receive his advice.
