Marcus Herennius Picens (fl. 1st century BC) was a Roman senator who served as suffect consul in 34 BC.


Herennius Picens is believed to be the grandson of Titus Herennius, who fought against the Romans during the Social War.[1] In 34 BC, he was appointed suffect consul, replacing Gaius Memmius and occupying the office from November 1 through to December 31.[2] Herennius Picens was probably next appointed the Proconsular governor of Asia in 33 BC.[3]

Herennius Picens was the patron of the town of Veii.[4] He was probably the father of Marcus Herennius Picens, who was a suffect consul in AD 1.[5]
