The Siege of Trebizond in April 1282 was an unsuccessful siege of Trebizond, the capital of the namesake empire, by the Georgians under a certain David (either David I of Imereti or a confusion with Demetrius II of Georgia). Little is known about the attack, but it may have relied on support within the Trebizondian aristocracy, which opposed the rapprochement of Emperor John II of Trebizond (reigned 1280–1297) with the Palaiologan Byzantine court at Constantinople.
