An ancient settlement or region of Babylonia whose precise location cannot be determined today. It was established as a tax-collection sub-district of Vēh-Artakhshatr by Ardashīr I. This place was also called Rumae and is referred to in the Babylonian Talmud, Treatise Megillah 26b, as having had a Jewish community.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 91 Rumakan

The Barrington Atlas Directory places Rumakan to the west of Veh-Ardashir. Morony puts it "probably between the city of Vēh-Artakhshatr and Sābāṭ". Obermeyer suggests that it was situated near Mehuza.
