Kalebu bin Tazena(maarufu kama Elesbaan; alifariki 540/555 hivi) ni mfalme maarufu wa Aksum mwanzoni mwa karne ya 6, ambaye ufalme wake ulienea katika Eritrea na Jimbo la Tigray, Ethiopia ya leo.
Kalebu alivamia Yemen mwaka 520 hivi ili kumuadhibu mfalme Myahudi Yusuf Asar Yathar, maarufu kama Dhu Nuwas, aliyeangamiza Wakristo wa Najran. Baada ya mapigano mengi alipata ushindi na kumweka Mkristo mwenyeji Sumuafa' Ashawa' (Esimiphaios) kutawala Himyar kwa niaba yake.

- At Aksum, in inscription RIE 191, his name is rendered in unvocalized Gə‘əz as KLB ’L ’ṢBḤ WLD TZN (Kaleb ʾElla ʾAṣbeḥa, son of Tazena). In vocalized Gə‘əz, it is ካሌብ እለ አጽብሐ (Kaleb ʾƎllä ʾAṣbəḥa). Procopius calls him "Hellestheaeus", a variant of Kigezo:Lang-grc-koi version of his regnal name, Kigezo:Lang-gez ʾƎllä ʾAṣbəḥa (Histories, 1.20). Variants of his name are Hellesthaeus, Ellestheaeus, Eleshaah, Ellesboas, and Elesboam.
- Axumite control of Arabia Felix continued until c.525 when Sumuafa' Ashawa' was deposed by Abraha, who made himself king. Procopius states that Kaleb made several unsuccessful attempts to recover his overseas territory; however, his successor later negotiated a peace with Abraha, where Abraha acknowledged the Axumite king's authority and paid tribute. Munro-Hay opines that by this expedition Axum overextended itself, and this final intervention across the Red Sea, "was Aksum's swan-song as a great power in the region."Munro-Hay, Aksum, p. 88.
