The Abdmiskar cippus is a white marble cippus in obelisk form discovered in Sidon, Lebanon, dated to 300 BCE. Discovered in 1890 by Joseph-Ange Durighello (son of the discoverer of the Sarcophagus of Eshmunazar II).

It contains a two line Phoenician inscription, stating that it represents an "offering made by Abdmiskar, son of Baalsillekh, to his lord Salman." It measures 105cm x 30cm x 30cm.[1] It has been compared to the obelisks in the Temple of the Obelisks in Byblos.

Today it is on display at the Louvre (AO 1759 + 1762).[1]

The inscription is known as KAI 282, RES 930, or the "fourth Sidonian".
