Kebren — A settlement in Troas
Kebren was an ancient Greek city in the middle Skamander valley in the Troad region of Anatolia. The earliest Greek archaeological remains found at Cebren date to the mid-7th and early 6th century BCE and were found together with indigenous pottery, suggesting that to begin with the city was a mixed Greco-Anatolian community.

In the 5th century BCE Cebren was a member of the Delian League and is listed in the Hellespontine district paying a tribute to Athens. Following the defeat of Athens at the end of the Peloponnesian War in 404 BCE, Cebren came under the control of Zenis, the tyrant of Dardanus, and his wife Mania who together controlled the Troad.

A rare series of bronze coins display the ram's head/head of Apollo associated with Kebren, but bear the legend Ἀντιοχέων (Antiocheōn, '(coin of the) Antiocheis'). It has been argued that Kebren was refounded by Antiochus I Soter as Antiocheia in the Troad following Antiochus' victory over Lysimachus at the Battle of Corupedium in 281 BC.
