The regions of Ravenna, Grado, and Istria are ravaged by the so-called Justinianic plague as Agilulf, King of the Lombards, makes peace with the Avars (narrative accounts from Paul the Deacon's History of the Lombards).
Hoc anno fuit pestis inguinaria iterum aput Ravennam, Gradus et Histria nimium gravis, sicut et prius ante triginta annos extiterat.a
Hoc etiam tempore Agilulfus rex cum Avaris pacem fecit.
a) pestis add. al. man. in marg. dex.
In this year the inguinal plague was again at Ravenna, Grado, and Istria, and it was very grievous, just as it had been thirty years before.
At this time too king Agilulf made peace with the Avars.
