Zabdicene (Armenian: Ծավդեք or Զավդեք, romanized: Tsavdek' or Zavdek'; Greek: Ζαβδικηνή, romanized: Zavdikene; Latin: Zabdiccena; Classical Syriac: Zawdai) was a Carduchian principality in southeastern Anatolia, in today's Turkey. It was located west of Ake, southwest of Anjewaci and north of Adiabene.
Bezabde and Phinika (Pinaka, Finik) were located in Zabdicene. In 363, Zabdicene and its cities and fortresses were ceded to the Sasanian Empire. The principality declined by the mid-fifth century.
