„Thou hast conquered, Galilean!“

—  Julian (emperor) Roman Emperor, philosopher and writer 331 - 363
Misattributed, Vicisti, Galilaee or "νενίκηκας Γαλιλαῖε" This exclamation has often been attributed to Julian, as his last words, but it actually originates much later with the derisive account of his death by Theodoret in Ecclesiastical History, Book III, Ch. 20 (c. 429), as an exclamation he made upon being fatally wounded; no prior account of such an declaration exists, even among those writers most hostile to Julian and his policies. Variant translations: Thou hast won, O Galilean! You have conquered, Galilean! You have won, Galilean.
