Antonio Maria Abbatini (26 January 1595 – ? after 15 March 1679) was an Italianmarker composer, active mainly in Romemarker.

Abbatini was born in Città di Castellomarker. He served as maestro di cappella at the Basilica of St. John Lateranmarker from 1626 to 1628, and thereafter successively at four other Roman churches. He composed a good deal of church music, and published three books of Masses, four of Psalms, various 24-part Antiphons (1630, 1638, 1677), five books of Motets (1635), and a dramatic cantata, Il Pianto di Rodomonte (1633). He also worked with Athanasius Kircher on the Musurgia Universalis.

In addition, he produced three operas: Dal male il bene (Rome, 1654; in collaboration with Marco Marazzoli), which was one of the earliest comic operas, and historically important as it introduced the final ensemble; Ione (Vienna, 1666); and La comica del cielo, also called La Baltasara (Rome, 1668).
