In the centrosymmetric dinuclear title compound, [Pb2(C7H5O2)4(C12H8N2)2], two Pb2+ ions are connected by two tridentate bridging benzoate anions. The Pb2+ ion is seven-coordinated by five O atoms from three benzoate anions and two N atoms from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligands. The benzoate anions adopt two different coordination modes, one bidentate–chelating and one tridentate bridging–chelating. The three-dimensional supra­molecular framework is achieved by inter­molecular π–π stacking inter­actions, with a shortest centroid–centroid distance of 3.617 (4) Å.
