Arabissus was a town and episcopal see in the Roman province of Armenia II. The bishopric, a suffragan of Melitene, is now included in the Catholic Church's list of titular sees. The Byzantine Emperor Maurice was born here in 539 AD.
Several Jacobite bishops of Arabissus are mentioned between the seventh and tenth centuries by Michael the Syrian.
