Apries (Απριης) is the name by which Herodotus (ii. 161) and Diodorus (i. 68) designate Wahibre, Ουαφρης (Pharaoh-Hophra), a pharaoh of Egypt (589 BC-570 BC), the fourth king (counting from Psammetichus I) of the Twenty-sixth dynasty of Egypt. He was equated with the Waphres of Manetho, who correctly records that he reigned for 19 years. He is also called Hophra as in Jeremiah 44:30 of Ephree.

Apries inherited the throne from his father, the undistingished Psammetichus II and continued his poor military record.
Apries was killed in a conflict with his eventual successor Amasis II, a former general who had declared himself pharaoh.
Egypt: God's Wife of Amun (688 words)
The King commonly referred to as Apries (his Greek name), who's birth name was Wah-ib-re, meaning "Constant is the Heart of Re" and who's Throne name was Haa-ib-re, meaning "Jubilant is the Heart of Re Forever", succeeded his father, Psamtik II in February of 589 BC., of Egypt's 26th Dynasty.
Apris was blamed for this disaster, resulting in a confrontation between the regular Egyptian army (the machimoi) and foreign mercenaries (Greek) under his command.
When Apris sent his general, Amasis (Ahmose II) to put down the revolt, instead he was implored by the Egyptians instead to be their leader, a plead which he accepted.
