Barce was an ancient Greek colony and later Roman, Byzantine, city
in North Africa. It occupied the coastal area of what is modern day
Libya. As a Greek city it was part of the Cyrenaican Pentapolis
along with the city of Cyrene itself. According to most
archeologists, it was situated at Al Marj, but according to
Alexander Graham at Tolmeitha (Ptolemais). The city's name,
Arabized as Barqah, came to refer to the former state and province
of Cyrenaica. Bark was founded by Greek colonists in the 7th
century BCE. Early Christianity spread to the Pentapolis of North
Africa from Egypt. Synesius of Cyrene (370-414), bishop of
Ptolemais, received his instruction at Alexandria in both the
Catechetical School and the Museion, and he entertained a great
deal of reverence and affection for Hypatia, the last pagan
Neoplatonists, whose classes he had attended. Synesius was raised
to the episcopate by Theophilus, patriarch of Alexandria, in 410
A.D. Since the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D.
