Ptolemy X Alexander I (Ancient Greek: Πτολεμαῖος Ἀλέξανδρος, c. 140–88 BCE) was a Pharaoh of the Ptolemaic Dynasty during the Hellenistic Period. He was Ptolemaic king of Cyprus from 114 BCE until 107 BCE, when he became pharaoh of Egypt from 107 BCE till his death in 88 BCE. He ruled in co-regency with his mother Cleopatra III as Ptolemy Philometor Soter until 101 BC, and then with his niece and wife Berenice III as Ptolemy Philadelphos. He was a son of Ptolemy VIII and Cleopatra III, and younger brother of Ptolemy IX. His birth name was probably Alexander.
