Abibus of Edessa (c.307-322), also known as Abibus the New, was a Christian Deacon who was martyred at Edessa, Mesopotamia under Emperor Licinius. He was burned at the stake. According to the Synaxaristes, Christians took his relics and buried them with those of the fellow martyrs Guria and Shamona. With Guria and Shamona, he is venerated as one of the “avengers of unfulfilled contracts”.

His individual feast day is September 2 in the old Syrian martyrology and November 2 in the Eastern Orthodox church.[1] In the Roman Catholic Church he is celebrated on November 15, with Guria and Shamona.
