Abudimus (Greek: Αβούδιμος) (died 305) was a Greek Christian martyr also known as Abudemius of Bozcaada.[1]

He was subjected to torture during the Diocletian persecution on the island of Tenedos, before dying in 305. The reason for the martyrdom was that the saint did not want to eat meat sacrificed to idols.[2]

He is regarded as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, with a feast day of July 15.
