CAENAE (Καιναὶ, Xen. Anab. 2.4.28), a town of some importance on the western bank of the Tigris; according to Xenophon, 34 parasangs N. of Opis, and south of the river Zabatus, or Lesser Záb. Its exact position cannot be determined, as he does not mention its distance from the Záb; but it has been conjectured that it is represented by a place now called Senn. (Mannert, vol. ii. p. 244.)
