Presumably if a number of people still have copies of the blockchain on USB sticks or somewhere it may be moribund, but not actually dead. I guess if a number of people made a few transfers, and did a bit of mining, it could be revived. I suppose the question really is - would anybody want to?

Nope.

Altcoins are usually dead from early beginnings. Pumping mostly equals some dark arts of necromancy.

If the source is available you can bring an alt back to life.  The thing is why would you bother?

1. developer not dealing with the coin.

2. coin being non innovative (clone).

3. investors not buying it.
