By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]

  • The Byzantine outpost of Cherson (Crimea) rebels with Khazar assistance against emperor Justinian II. He sends a fleet under the patrikios Stephen, which retakes the city and restores Byzantine control. The fleet however is struck by a storm on its way back and loses many ships, while the Chersonites, again with the aid of the Khazars, rebel anew.[1]
  • The Byzantine general Leo (future emperor Leo III) recovers Abkhazia (Caucasus) for the Byzantine Empire from the Arabs.[2]
