CADE´NA (τὰ Κάδηνα), a place in Cappadocia mentioned by Strabo (p. 537) as the royal residence of one Sisinas, who in the time of Strabo was aiming at the sovereignty of the Cappadocians. The site is unknown, though D'Anville fixed it at Nigdé. Cramer (Asia Minor, vol. ii. p. 132) writes the name Cadyna, and adds that Strabo seems to state that it was on the borders of Lycaonia; but see Groskurd's note (Transl. Strab. vol. ii. p. 452) on the passage.
