Year 380 BC was a year of the pre-Julian Roman calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Tribunate of Poplicola, Poplicola, Maluginensis, Lanatus, Peticus, Mamercinus, Fidenas, Crassus and Mugillanus (or, less frequently, year 374 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 380 BC 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.
- Persia forces the Athenians to withdraw their general Chabrias from Egypt. Chabrias has been successfully supporting the Egyptian Pharaohs in maintaining their independence from the Persian Empire.
- The Egyptian Pharaoh Hakor dies and is succeeded by his son Nepherites II, but the latter is overthrown by Nectanebo I within the year, ending the Twenty-ninth dynasty of Egypt. Nectanabo (or more properly Nekhtnebef) becomes the first Pharaoh of the Thirtieth dynasty of Egypt.
- The Roman Republic held elections for military tribunes with consular power . Military tribunes were as follows. Lucius Valerius (for the fifth time), Publius Valerius (third time), Gaius Sergius (third time), Licinius Menenius (second time), Publius Papirius and Servius Cornelius Maluginensis. War sprang up with the Praenestines and they soon moved to the territory of the Gabii (east of Rome ), as soon as they heard of civil disputes in Rome. In Rome the enrolment of troops could not start, the tribunes and the commons opposed it. The young men refused to enroll their names and the tribunes would not allow those bound over to be taken away for military service. The Praenstines meanwhile saw that Rome had no army in the field, so they proceeded to destroy all the fields up to Rome and appear near the walls of Rome. Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus was made dictator, and he chose Aulus Sempronius Atratinus as master of the horse. Quinctius defeated the enemy at Allia. Afterwards he captured eight towns subject to Praenste, stormed Velitrae, and accepted the surrender of Praenste. Quinctius held a triumph in which he brought with him a statue of Jupiter from Praenste.
