Apollonius of Tyana was a miracle worker and healer, who "raised the dead," although, unlike the claims made of Jesus, Apollonius never claimed a divine power, but instead always attributed his miracles to knowledge gained through a life of study. He was a Neopythagorean philosopher, and a traveller through Persia to distant India, as well as over the Empire. His biography by Philostratus is fascinating:

We know that Apollonius was an historical person of the first century CE. That is, from 3 CE to about 97 CE.
