the mother of Julian the apostate, being the second wife of Julius Constantius, brother of Constantine the Great.
She is believed to have been the daughter of Anicius Julianus, consul in A. D. 322, and afterwards prefect of the city. Her marriage took place at Constantinople, and she died in 331, a few months after the birth of her only son. From this princess the city of Basilinopolis in Bithynia received its name. (Ammian.
