Valerianus served as praetorian prefect of Gaul sometime prior to 456, when Sidonius Apollinaris sent him a selection of his verses, praising him as a critic. Eucherius of Lyons dedicated his Epistula Paranetica ad Valerianum cognatum de contemptu mundi et saecularis philosophiae to Valerianus. His daughter was married to the orator Pragmatius.
