According to Greek mythology, Pyrene ( ) was a nymph. She was the daughter of King Bebrycius and a lover of Hercules. She bore a serpent and became so terrified that she fled to the woods where she died. Hercules created a tomb for her by piling up rocks thus forming the mountain range of the Pyreneesmarker, named after her.

Pyrene was also the mother of Cycnus with Ares.
