Carcathiocerta (Armenian: Կարկաթիոկերտ, Karkatiokert or Արկաթիակերտ, Arkatiakert. Ancient Greek: Καρκαθιόκερτα, Karkathiokerta) was a city in Armenian Sophene near the Tigris, identified with the modern city of Eğil. It was the first capital of Sophene until Arsames I founded the new capital Arshamshat around 230 BCE.
Strabo in his Geography, calls it "The royal city of Sophene".
