Year 71 (LXXI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Augustus and Nerva (or, less frequently, year 824 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 71 for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years.

- Cerialis defeats Claudius Civilis at the Battle of Treves, thus quelling the Batavian rebellion.

The leader of the Zealots, Simon Bar Giora, is lashed and strangled in the Forum.
