Year 514 (DXIV) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Cassiodorus without colleague (or, less frequently, year 1267 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 514 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.


By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]

  • Vitalian, Byzantine general, marched again to Constantinople. A fleet of 200 vessels sails from the Black Sea ports and blockade the entrance of the harbor capital. Emperor Anastasius I is disquieted by riots in the city, which cost many casualties, and decides to negotiate with Vitalian.
  • Vitalian accepts the receipt of ransom money and gifts worth in total 5,000 pounds of gold for the release of Hypatius. He is a nephew of Anastasius I and is taken prisoner during the attack at Acris (see 513). Vitalian retreats his forces back to Lower Moesia.
