Anicia Iuliana (c. CE 461–527/8), a Constantinopolitan aristocrat (see constantinople) of western senatorial family (the Anicii) and imperial descent (*Valentinian III, grandfather; Olybrius, father); she was a staunch Chalcedonian Christian. In 512 rioters attempted to proclaim her husband Areobindus emperor instead of the Monophysite Anastasius. A generous ecclesiastical patron, she lavishly reconstructed the church of St Polyeuctus.
