Zabdicene or Bezabde was a Carduchian[1] principality in southeastern Anatolia, in central Kurdistan. It was located west of Ake, southwest of Anjewaci and north of Adiabene.

Zabdicene was considered a significant Roman stronghold. In 360 it was subject to an invasion by Shapur II. [2]

The principality declined by the mid-fifth century.
