Fairey IIIF or Do 22g? Can you identify these relics?

These are some photos of the relics of a greek seaplane in the bay of Monemvasia ,Greece.
According to " Air war for Yugoslavia Greece and Crete" this might be one of the four Do 22g of the Hellenic Air Force lost during a luftwaffe raid at the 28/4/1941.According to another source this might be a Fairey IIIF.
Can anyone identify this aircraft?
I apologise for the poor quality of the photos!

These pictures were taken at the Monemvasia bay in a depth of 5-6 meters.Maybe you can check you engineering drawings regarding the big piece of the float.
Thank you for you interest.

Thank you very much Pilot.It is exactly what i was looking for.As i can see the float of the foto don't seem to be similar to the drawing. Do you have the same drawing in profile?

Reinforcing lool similar on the photo but better close view when you are down under. On the side drawings can not be seen important details on the floats.

If it was a Dornier, surely there would be a lot more left of it.

I also believe that if it was a Do22g maybe i had found more parts of the aircraft.Yesterday i found an article in a magazine which is talking about Fairey IIIF's.I am tending to believe that it is one of them.
Thank you both for your notices.
