Try

\start
\setupcaptions[number=no]
\placefigure
[right]
%  [fig:pythagoras]
% If there is no number, you can not refer to it
{An early portrait of Pythagoras.}
{\getbuffer[figure]}
\stop

Basically \start \stop limit the effect of \setupcaptions. You can
also use \bgroup \egroup or { .. } instead. I find \start \stop more
Contexish.
