Eusene (Ancient Greek: Εὐσήνη) was a town of ancient Pontus, not far from the coast, a little to the northwest of Amisus.[1][2] The Tabula Peutingeriana calls it Ezene. The anonymous Geographer of Ravenna calls it Aezene and Ecene.

Its site is tentatively located near Incesukahvesi in Asiatic Turkey.[3][4]
