He had gained his freedom, amassed a fortune, and having learnt many things from the Greeks – including from Pythagoras, described as “not the weakest wise man (σοφιστής)” – he set about teaching his fellow-countrymen that they would live in bliss forever. He built himself an underground chamber where he hid for three years, emerging on the fourth to persuade the Thracians that his stories and account of the afterlife were true. Herodotus does not credit this story, saying that Salmoxis must have lived long before Pythagoras; but nowhere in this account is there any mention of transmigration.
