>Elves also make great use of archers, something the greeks shunned or at least were never renowned for.
Cretan archers were famed mercenaries across the ancient greek world and frequently hired to support hoplite phalanxes. Although peltasts and slingers were more common skirmishers and ranged infantry because of the martial culture predominant around hoplite warfare.

>Also the cavalry, especially for the high elves, another thing the ancient greeks weren't really professionals at.
Yes they were. Thessalians were famed as horsemen and later in the greek period you have the Macedonian cavalry tradition with the Companion cavalry. However, Silver Helms and Dragon Princes are much closer to medieval knights (maybe even cataphracts) than cavalry in ancient greece.
>but I'm absolutely not sold on high elves being ancient greek-expies entirely.
The elves draw a lot from the ancient mediterreanean cultures but it is predominantly ancient greece to the point you could call them expies. You even have the rivalry of athens and sparta in the asur/druchii split and the elven colonies are a lot more similar to ancient greek colonies around the mediterranean rather than later colonial empires.
>big emphasize on swords, although their leaf-shape is certainly based on bronze design,
The sword was an important sidearm to the greeks, although the leaf designs bear more in common with earlier bronze types rather than the kopis and xifos the classical greeks used.
>the axes of the white lions,
The White Lions are based on Hercules wearing a lion skin mixed with the Thracian mountain men. GW just gave them great axes because of the woodsman tradition. Axes were also a popular weapon in the Greek bronze age, but that's much earlier than the classical period.
Continuing in a second post.

I don't think they were ever mentioned in the actual lore, nor novels. They are mostly an art thing or video games.

>the point is that people call instances like her and others elves
Doesn't mean anything if she isn't an elf at all.
>like?
I already mentioned several posts ago. She is a human with pointy ears, nothing of her origin, her life, her spirituality is different from any other caster. She is a part of our world, of our mythology. The mythic Medea was never an elf.
>not without the ears they dont
Shows how little you know about the traditonal games you talk about. Yes, this is a very extreme example, though whatever that is you posted doesn't disprove me in any way
