August

Julian II, Caesar in 355, was proclaimed august in Paris in February 360. After the death of Constantius II in November 361, he remained sole master of the empire. Located in Antioch at the beginning of 363, where he wrote the Misopogon (From those against beards - because he had a beard philosophers), he abjured Christianity trying to create a pagan syncretism. This policy failed and did not survive the emperor who was killed June 26 363 killed or murdered, then he began a brilliant campaign against the Sassanids.
