1. Pindar, Olympian Odes, 2.56-2.60 (6th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

2. Plato, Cratylus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

398b. Hermogenes. Quite likely. Socrates. But the good are the wise, are they not? Hermogenes. Yes, they are the wise. Socrates. This, then, I think, is what he certainly means to say of the spirits: because they were wise and knowing ( δαήμονες ) he called them spirits ( δαίμονες ) and in the old form of our language the two words are the same. Now he and all the other poets are right, who say that when a good man die
3. Plato, Philebus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

30a. Soc. Well, is this next one worth asking? What will you say to it? Pro. What is it? Soc. Shall we not say that our body has a soul? Pro. Clearly we shall. Soc. Where did it get it, Protarchus, unless the body of the universe had a soul, since that body has the same elements as ours, only in every way superior? Pro. Clearly it could get it from no other source. Soc. No; for we surely do not believe, Protarchus, that of those four elements, the finite, the infinite, the combination
4. Xenophon, Memoirs, 1.4.8 (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

1.4.8. Do you think you have any wisdom yourself? Oh! Ask me a question and judge from my answer. And do you suppose that wisdom is nowhere else to be found, although you know that you have a mere speck of all the earth in your body and a mere drop of all the water, and that of all the other mighty elements you received, I suppose, just a scrap towards the fashioning of your body? But as for mind, which alone, it seems, is without mass, do you think that you snapped it up by a lucky accident, and that the orderly ranks of all these huge masses, infinite in number, are due, forsooth, to a sort of absurdity?
5. Chrysippus, Fragments, 2.1103-2.1104 (3rd cent. BCE - 3rd cent. BCE)

6. Chrysippus, Fragments, 2.1103-2.1104 (3rd cent. BCE - 3rd cent. BCE)

7. Chrysippus, Fragments, 2.1103-2.1104 (3rd cent. BCE - 3rd cent. BCE)

9. Cicero, On The Nature of The Gods, 2.91 (2nd cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

2.91. For in the first place the earth, which is situated in the centre of the world, is surrounded on all sides by this living and respirable substance named the air. 'Air' is a Greek word, but yet it has by this time been accepted in use by our race, and in fact passes current as Latin. The air in turn is embraced by the immeasurable aether, which consists of the most elevated portions of fire. The term 'aether' also we may borrow, and employ it like 'air' as a Latin word, though Pacuvius provides his readers with a translation: What I speak of, we call heaven, but the Greeks it 'aether' call — just as though the man who says this were not a Greek! 'Well, he is talking Latin,' you may say. Just so, if we won't suppose we are hearing him talk Greek; in another passage Pacuvius tells us: A Grecian born: my speech discloses that.
10. Plutarch, On The Obsolescence of Oracles, None (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

11. Plutarch, On Isis And Osiris, None (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

360e. whom Plato and Pythagoras and Xenocrates and Chrysippus, following the lead of early writers on sacred subjects, allege to have been stronger than men and, in their might, greatly surpassing our nature, yet not possessing the divine quality unmixed and uncontaminated, but with a share also in the nature of the soul and in the perceptive faculties of the body, and with a susceptibility to pleasure and pain and to whatsoever other experience is incident to these mutations, and is the source of much disquiet in some and of less in others. For in demigods, as in men, there are divers degrees of virtue and vice.
12. Plutarch, On Stoic Self-Contradictions, None (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

13. Plutarch, Placita Philosophorum (874D-911C), 1.6 (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)
