Pindar (c.522-443BC) was one of the nine Ancient Greek lyric poets.
Orpheus was a figure in Greek mythology, associated with singing and playing the lyre; he was the inspiration for an Ancient Greek religion known as Orphism.
Orphic beliefs share some characteristics with Buddhism, holding that the soul must pass through several bodies in a "grievous circle" before being released to the spiritual plane.
