The role of the Comes Lucillianus during Julian's Persian expedition
It is argued that Lucillianus was comes of the Lanciarii and Mattiarii during Julian's Persian expedition in AD363, and that he was dismissed from his post when he refused to lead his troops in a frontal assault against a fortified Persian position on the opposite bank of the Tigris (Lib. Or. 18.250).
