Beroe

Βερόη), a Trojan woman, married to Doryclus, one of the companions of Aeneas. Iris assumed the appearance of Beroe when she per-suaded the women to set fire to the ships of Aeneas on the coast of Sicily. (Verg. A. 5.620), &c.) There are three other mythical personages of this name, concerning whom nothing of interest is related. (Hygin. Fab. 167; Virg. Georg. 4.341 ; Nonnus, Dionys. 41.155.)
