Rome: Italy`s police squad for art says a
pre-Christian warrior`s skeleton has been found floating in a
tomb filled with sea water on a beach near Rome.
The bones are believed to date from between 2,000 BC to
Carabinieri art squad official Raffaele Mancino said
that the warrior was likely killed by an arrow that was
found among his ribs. He says there was also a hole in the
back of the skull.
The warrior is nicknamed "Nello" after the archaeologist
who found him in May as art hunters were making a routine
check of the region`s archaeological areas. The bones were
found along with six vases and two daggers.

lying just a few steps from the sea.
