>the warrior's grave dated back to the Middle Bronze Age, around the second millennium BC,
A relative perhaps, or a bad guy?

It's too bad the news story is not more precise. The second millennium lasted 1000 years--surely they can pinpoint the date of the graves more exactly. The scarab may be datable within narrow limits. The Middle Bronze Age should be from about 1950 to 1550 B.C. They don't say whether the Phoenician text was in cuneiform, hieroglyphics, or alphabetic.
