Events[edit]

By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]

  • Spring – The Byzantine army led by general Melias (Domestic of the Schools in the East) continues the operations in Upper Mesopotamia. In July, he moves against Amida (modern Turkey). Melias defeats the Arabs outside the walls and begins to lay siege to the city. After a few days, a violent wind and a thick dust spreads over the Byzantine camp. Covered by the dust, the Arabs attack and route the Byzantines. Many of them are slaughtered and some, including Melias, are taken prisoner. Previous Byzantine gains in the area are lost. The wounded Melias dies later in captivity.
