The image of the princess Anicia Juliana on the dedication page of the Vienna Dioscurides (ca. 512) is usually seen as a standard image of a learned lady. It is argued here that it should be seen in a wider context, as an image of dynastic ideology, associating Juliana with the ruler virtues sophia, phronesis and megalopsychia.
