Pṛthivīṣeṇa I (r. 355-385 CE) is a king from the Eastern Vākāṭakas (Nandivardhana branch) dynasty of ancient India. During the rule of the Vākāṭakas (founded by Vindhyaśakti), there was a burst of patronage and creative energy directed at the Ajantā caves at West-Khandesh (West-Khaṇḍeśa, modern Jalgaon) that existed since the 3rd century BCE. During this time the region was ruled by kings (eg., Pṛthivīṣeṇa) and descendants of the Sātavāhana lineage. Pṛthivīṣeṇa I was preceded by Rudraṣeṇa I and succeeded by Rudraṣeṇa II.

Pṛthivīṣeṇa II from the Nandivardhana branch (Eastern Vākāṭakas) reigned 480-505 and was preceded by Narendraṣeṇa.
