Berenice was a coastal city of western Cyrenaica, located at modern Benghazi in Libya. Founded in the third century BCE, it replaced the earlier Greek colony of Eusperides, which had been centered a short distance to the northeast. Berenice was named in honor of Berenice of Cyrene, the queen of Ptolemy III Euergetes.
