COMISE´NE (Κουισηνή, Ptol. 6.5.1; Strab. xi. p.514), one of the divisions of Parthia, according to Ptolemy, adjoining Hyrcania. Isidorus Charax (p. 7) describes it as adjacent to Choarene or Chorene, and as containing eight villages. Strabo would seem to place it in Armenia. It is not unlikely that a district he calls Camisene (xii. p. 559) may be the same as the Comisene of the other geographers. Its present name is said to be Komis.
