    Abstract

    Scholars have often assumed that Julian's efforts to restore paganism were met with indifference at best. However, a study of Latin inscriptions praising the emperor and his religious actions can shed light on support for his revival of paganism. Although supplemented by other examples, five inscriptions from Casae, Thibilis, Panaeas, Mursa, and Cherchel are examined in detail and placed into proper context. This article argues that epigraphic evidence shows broader support for Julian's revival, both geographically and socially.
