Abarnani is a fortified city in Que, probably in the eastern part of the Cilician plain. The city is mentioned with Lusanda and Kisuatni in royal inscriptions of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858-824 BC).

The location of Abarnani is unknown. Sultan Tepe, ca. 24 km east of Ceyhan has been suggested as a possible location. Most scholars are generally sceptical about that proposal.
