Well or military it would definitely be Justinian but I'll do some research and look in to other great emperors in culture, art, and those categories

While it's true the Byzantine Empire reached its greatest extent under Justinian, the actual flowering of culture and art didn't really occur until the 10th, and 11th centuries, under the Macedonian emperors. I'd say specifically it peaked with Basil II during the Macedonian Renaissance.
