A newly uncovered artwork in the catacombs of Rome has some experts believing it's the oldest image of the Christian apostle Paul.
The faded image shows a man with a triangular-shaped face and pointed beard as he looks straight ahead.
According to published reports in Europe, the fresco dating back to the 4th century was discovered during restoration work at the Catacomb of St. Thekla, but was kept secret for ten days. The catacomb, or Christian burial place, is close to the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in Rome, which is said to be built on the location where Paul was buried

From what I read, Paul wrote most of the stories in the New Testiment.
I guess they found his body according to this article and another thread just recently posted.
