The Iceni Template:IPAc-en or Eceni were a Brythonic tribe in Britannia (or Britain) who inhabited an area corresponding roughly to the modern-day county of Norfolk from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD. They were bordered by the Corieltauvi to the west, and the Catuvellauni and Trinovantes to the south. The tribe turned into a civitas during the Roman occupation of Britannia. Their capital was Venta Icenorum.

Julius Caesar described the Iceni as Cenimagni, who surrendered to him during his second expedition to Britain in 54 BC. The Cenimagni may have been a branch of the Iceni or it could be a corruption of Iceni Magni meaning "Great Iceni".
