653 Berenike is a main-belt asteroid discovered on November 27, 1907 by Joel Hastings Metcalf at Taunton, Massachusetts.[1] It is named after Berenice II of Egypt, after whom the constellation Coma Berenices is also named.

This is a member of the dynamic Eos family of asteroids that most likely formed as the result of a collisional breakup of a parent body.[7]
