Pope Donus dies in Rome. Not much is known about Pope Donus, but it is believed that he started a number of major construction projects around Rome and convinced the archbishop of Ravenna to stop trying to become independent of the authority of Rome.

Pope Donus died, though, before he could get much done. In fact, even though he was a relatively young man when elected, he only lasted two years as pope while his predecessor Adeodatus II lasted four years as pope and was an old man when elected.
