Year 282 (CCLXXXII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Probus and Victorinus (or, less frequently, year 1035 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 282 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.
- Emperor Probus travels towards Sirmium (Serbia). He tries to employ his troops in peaceful projects, such as draining the swamps in Pannonia.
- Probus is murdered by his discontented troops. Marcus Aurelius Carus, an Illyrian and praetorian prefect, is proclaimed new emperor.
- Carus defeats the Quadi and Sarmatians on the Danube; for his victories he is given the title Germanicus Maximus.
- Carus appoints his oldest son Marcus Aurelius Carinus, Caesar and co-emperor of the western Roman Empire.
- A new city is constructed in Fuzhou, slightly south of the original city Ye (the main street of the city has remained unchanged since that time).
