I would also be curious about danforth, fortress, and clones of these. Are they just not found in the med?

I have not seen a great many Danforth anchors used in the Med as primary anchor. The Brittany a sort of stockless danforth is popular with french sailors and seems to rotate and reset better than the danforth to a change in wind direction, but I would still not rate it as a great choice in the hard sand often found here.

Fortress is a verycommon secondary anchor.
