    We show firstly the equivalence between existence of a periodic solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation 'formula presented' is a bounded domain of 'formula presented', with the Dirichlet boundary condition 'formula presented' and that of a subsolution of the stationary problem 'formula presented' under the assumptions that the function 'formula presented' is periodic in t and H is coercive. Here 'formula presented' denotes the average of f over the period. This proposition is a variant of a recent result for 'formula presented' due to Bostan-Namah, and we give a different and simpler approach to such an equivalence. Secondly, we establish that any periodic solution u(x, t) of the problem, ut + H(x, Du) = 0 in 'formula presented' and 'formula presented', is constant in t on the Aubry set for H. Here H is assumed to be convex, coercive and strictly convex in a sense.
