M. J. Osborne and S. G. Byrne (Oxford, 1994), 412 col. 3, sub Sôkratês Alopeke. A better example would be the famous, though ill-attested outside of his romanced biography by Philostratus, 1st-century AD Neo-Pythagorean chaman Apollonius of Tyana.

Alan Segal's "Life After Death" deals with all the issues that have been
discussed in this thread of another name. If someone has already
mentioned Segal I apologize for repeating it- but if his work has been
mentioned list folk really should give it a read.
