Ruins of a church likely built around the fifth century AD, on the summit of the low hill of Sidi Khiribech in Berenike. The character of the building and its position has suggested to some archaeologists a defensive as well as a religious purpose.

The transliteration "Sidi Khiribech" of the Arabic name سيدي اخريبيش has been preferred as the main placename, for consistency with the labels showing in OpenStreetMap. Kenrick 2013 and Christian Monuments 2003, though, use the, equally correct, "Sidi Khrebish", while Stucchi 1975 chooses the less convincing "Sidi Krebish".
