Nice Greek Theosophy. I find they harmonize well with the early TS accounts of reincarnation. There's actually quite a bit of interesting platonic material to explore. From Empedocles to Plato's myth of Er in the Republic, (and the also the complementary Gorgias and Phaedo myths). There's Synesios' "On Dreams" (http://www.livius.org/su-sz/synesius/synesius_dreams_01.html) and Proclus gives an extensive neoplatonic commentary on Plato's myth of Er. On the Latin side, there's Macrobius' Commentary on Scipio's Dream, based on Cicero's text, itself based on the Plato's Myth of Er.
