Abdisho (Syriac: ʰbhedhišoʰ), a member of the Church of the East, was a deacon and martyr.

He was imprisoned with Bishop Heliodorus of Bet Zabdai in Mesopotamia by order of Shapur II. Following the deaths of bishop Dausa and 275 companions at Masabadan, Abdisho, who survived, continued to preach the gospel and bury the martyrs. He was sentenced to death by the mayor of the village in 345.
