A strange Phoenix specimen

This plant grows in Crete.  I am not sure what exactly it is. Probably a hybrid but what may be the parent spp? Or the peculiar look is caused only by the grow conditions?

Konstantinos, you would have been one of my first choices for the correct answer on this species, location in the world.  Merely looking at the canopy along with the trunk and held frond base pattern......using Palmpedia photos, I would like offering a list removing some species from the discussion and a possible list.

No traits appear from the following:  P. Canar., P. Dact., P. Reclin., P. Roeb.,  and for sure a favorite of you and me P. Theo.

Some traits to my hobbyist eyes could be from:  P. Lour. ,  P. Sylv

I would instead include roebelenii, dactylifera and theophrasti beside sylvestris. Leaflets look too soft, if only I could feel their texture...
