Ἱουλιανός), a PHYSICIAN of Alexandria, a contemporary of Galen, in the second century after Christ. (Gal. Adv. Julian. 100.1. vol. xviii. pt. i. p. 248.) He was a pupil of Apollonius of Cyprus (Gal. De Meth. Med. 1.7, vol. x p . 54), and belonged to the sect of the Methodici, and was said to have composed forty-eight books against the "Aphorisms" of Hippocrates (Adv. Julian. l.c.). The second of these was directed against the second Aphorism of the first section, and is confuted in a short essay written by Galen with excessive and unjustifiable rudeness and asperity. None of his writings (which were numerous) are still extant. From Galen's mentioning that it was more than twenty years since lie had met Julianus at Alexandria (De Meth. Med. p. 53), and that he was then still alive, it will appear that Julianus was living as late as about the year 180 after Christ. (See Littré's Hippocrates, vol. i. pp. 103, 114.)
