Early Greek was written right-to-left, just like Phoenician. However, eventually its direction changed to boustrophedon (which means "ox-turning"), where the direction of writing changes every line. Boustrophedon was an intermediate stage, and by the 5th century BCE, left-to-right became the de-facto direction of writing.
