This was definitely in the realm of sci-fi series:
I think title of series had the word Phoenix in it or the main character's powers or power came from a big gold medallion with an illustration of a Phoenix on it. It starts out with a body of an ancient man being dug up by some archaeologist on a dig site. He woke up, but then all I remember is he is always wandering or hitchhiking, kind of like the beginning and ending scene from the Incredible Hulk series in the 80's. One of the characters was a tall weird looking guy with long blonde hair, who drew some kind of power from his Phoenix medallion or something
