Site in Lycia, near Karcibayiri at the N end of the Sivri Dağ, ca. 17 km W of Antalya. The termination of the name is uncertain. Not mentioned by any ancient writer and known only from its coins and from inscriptions found on the spot or in the neighborhood. From one of the latter it appears that Trebenna was a member of the Lycian League in the 3d c. A.D. Hellenistic coins of League type inscribed ΤΠ can hardly be attributed to Trebenna, which at that time belonged rather to Pamphylia; the only certain coinage is of the time of Gordian III.

The ruins are on a small steep hill, which carries fortifications of mediaeval or later date; earlier remains are confined to a handful of inscriptions built into the walls, and a few sarcophagi. Trebenna is not to be confused with Trebenda, a dependency of Myra.
