This classical sculpture shows an originality and mastery of technique, especially in the rendering of the details of the face, hair and hands. Her right hand originally held a palm of martyrdom.

Juliana was a martyr that was beheaded. Her relics were transferred first to Pozzuoli, Cumae, and then finally to Naples. They are found in one of the side chapels of the abbey church of Montevergine..
