GABIE´NE (Γαβιηνή, Strab. xvi. p.745), one of the three eparchies into which Elymais was divided in ancient times: the other two were Mesabatica and Corbiana. It appears from the notice in Strabo that Gabiene was in the direction of Susa. It is mentioned in the wars of Alexander's successors, Antigonus having attempted to cut off Eumenes in that locality, and Eumenes having succeeded in wintering there in spite of the enemy. (Diod. 19.26, 34; Plut. Eum. 15; Polyaen. Strat. 4.6.13.)
