Abinergaos I, also known as Abinerglus, was the king of Characene during the second decade of the Christian era.[1]

The years of his reign are not known beyond a few coins. The coins are dated to the years AD 10/11, 11/12, 13/14 and 22/23.[2] However, he appears to be Abbinerigos mentioned by Josephus.[3]
