Eduard Julius Theodor Julius Friedländer (June 25, 1813 – April 4, 1884) was a German numismatist.


He was born on June 25, 1813 in Berlin. Friedländer's entire family embraced Christianity in 1820. After studying at the universities of Bonn and Berlin, and traveling in Italy (1838–1839), he obtained a position at the Königliche Sammlung der Antiken-Münzen in Berlin in 1840. During his travels to Italy (1844–1847) with his friend Theodor Mommsen he acquired further numismatic material which he brought to Berlin. In 1868 he became director of the numismatic section of the Berlin Museum. In 1872 he was elected a member of the Berlin Academy of Sciences.

From his literary remains Rudolf Weil published Repertorium zur Antiken Numismatik, a supplement to Théodore Edme Mionnet's Description des Médailles Antiques, Berlin, 1885.
