The year 586 BC was a year of the pre-Julian Roman calendar. In the Roman Empire, it was known as year 168 Ab urbe condita . The denomination 586 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.

The destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon in this year forms the background to the poems of the Book of Lamentations, a traditional "city lament" mourning the desertion of the city by God.[1]
