Translated headword: Ioulianos, Iulianus, Julian
Vetting Status: high
The son of the above-mentioned,[1] who flourished in the reign of Marcus Antoninus. He too wrote Theurgica, Telestica, and oracles in epic verse, and other [works] which happen to be occult [treatises] on this kind of knowledge.
On one occasion, when the Romans were suffering from thirst, [the story goes that] this man suddenly created and summoned up dark-coloured clouds and let loose heavy rain along with thunder and lightning bolts one after another. And this [they say that] by some cleverness Julian achieved. But others assert that it was Arnouphis, the Egyptian philosopher, who made this miracle.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰουλιανός, ὁ τοῦ προλεχθέντος υἱός, γεγονὼς ἐπὶ Μάρκου Ἀντωνίνου τοῦ βασιλέως. ἔγραψε καὶ αὐτὸς Θεουργικά, Τελεστικά, Λόγια δι' ἐπῶν: καὶ ἄλλα ὅσα τῆς τοιαύτης ἐπιστήμης κρύφια τυγχάνουσιν. ὅτι τοῦτόν φασι δίψει ποτὲ καμνόντων τῶν Ῥωμαίων, ἐξαίφνης ποιῆσαι νέφη τε ἀγερθῆναι ζοφώδη καὶ ὄμβρον ἀφεῖναι λάβρον ἅμα βρονταῖς τε καὶ σέλασιν ἐπαλλήλοις: καὶ τοῦτο σοφίᾳ τινὶ ἐργάσασθαι Ἰουλιανόν. οἱ δέ φασιν Ἄρνουφιν, τὸν Αἰγύπτιον φιλόσοφον, τοῦτο πεποιηκέναι τὸ θαυμάσιον.
