this is the abstract

Nearly 2000 years ago, Rome was the largest urban center of the ancient world and the capital of an
empire with over 60 million inhabitants. Although Rome has long been a subject of archaeological and
historical study, little is known about the genetic history of the Roman population. To fill this gap, we
performed whole genome sequencing on 127 individuals from 29 sites in and around Rome, spanning
the past 12,000 years. Using allele frequency and haplotype-based genetic analyses, we show that
Italy underwent two major prehistoric ancestry shifts corresponding to the Neolithic transition to
farming and the Bronze Age Steppe migration, both prior to the founding of the Roman Republic. As
Rome expanded from a small city-state to an empire controlling the entire Mediterranean, the city
became a melting pot of inhabitants from across the empire, harboring diverse ancestries from the
Near East, Europe and North Africa. Furthermore, we find that gene flow between Rome and
surrounding regions closely mirrors Rome’s geopolitical interactions. Interestingly, Rome’s population
remains heterogeneous despite these major ancestry shifts through time. Our study provides a first
look into the dynamic genetic history of Rome from before its founding, into the modern era.

the study is to be published soon it seems

they mention only neolithic and bronze age steppe turnovers

no mention of DNA from the Aegean, from the Eastern Meditterranean nor from bronze age Anatolia, at least not in or around Rome
