Cyneberht (or Embercus or Kinebertus) was a medieval Bishop of Lindsey.

He was consecrated between 716 and 731. He died in 731.[1] His death is recorded in the second continuation of the medieval chronicler Bede's Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum under the year 732.[2] He was also one of the informants for Bede's historical works, mainly for information about his diocese.[3] Bede recorded Cyneberht's information as coming from "the most reverent Bishop Cyneberht".[4]
