Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age throwing Disks

     Hello Everyone, it's been awhile.
     In Central/Northern Italy are grave stelae that show almost schematic representations of warriors and their weapons. Most common are warriors armed with either a sword or axe as the primary weapon, and a spear or several javelins.
      There is one from Reusa that seems to show something different; what *might* be a sharp-edged throwing disk.
       I know that I saw a paper that showed what might have been an actual artifact. To the best of my recollection, it was a scaled line drawing of a disk of either bronze or iron, thicker in the center and tapering to the edges, about 3 mm thick and 15 cm in diameter. The findsite was a warrior grave from central Italy. Like an idiot, I didn't mark or save the info.
        So, has anyone else heard of these or have actual info on the artifacts. Thanks in advance.

If you kill them at a distance, you won't have to dance with them.
