The Greek Anthology contains seventy-one epigrams which bear his name, and in which the author appears as an imitator of earlier poems of the same kind. They are mostly of a descriptive character, and refer to works of art. Julianus probably lived in the reign of Justinian, for among his epigrams there are two upon Hypatius, the nephew of the emperor Anastasius, who was put to death A. D. 532, by the command of Justinian. Another epigram is written upon Joannes, the grandson of Hypatius.
