Iota Cephei (ι Cep / ι Cep) is a Class K0, third-magnitude star in the constellation Cepheus. It is occasionally called by the proper name Alvahet or Alvahat (Arabic الواحة "al-wahat"), meaning "The Oasis", derived from the Arabic title of a northern asterism known as الواحة القفر "al-wahat al-qafr" "The Desert Oasis".

Iota Cephei is an orange giant star located about 115 light-years from Earth. Due to precession of the equinoxes, it will become the pole star some time around 5200 CE.
