Yes it is possible but these historical facts are hard to confirm, and even if we confirmed them and the theory of five elements seems meaningless both ideas will be lumped together and rejected. It is better to focus on what this theory is and why it is useful and let people infer who came first. I’m not about to say that this theory of five elements was appropriated by the Greeks!
