Hello!

Coma Berenices - 'Berenices Hair', is the wife of Eueregetes or Ptolemy III, King of Egypt. She was noted for having the most beautiful hair in the world. When her husband Ptolemy went to war against the feared Assyrians, Berenice vowed that she would cut off her hair and give it to the goddess Aphrodite, should the king return safely. Upon the Kings victorious return, Berecice had her long beautiful hair cut off and placed on the temple altar.
After the hair was discovered missing from the temple, the royal astronomer proclaimed that the goddess Aphrodite had accepted the gift of Berenice's hair, and the goddess had placed it up into the heavens, where it could be seen shining by the constellation Leo.
