Other Hellenistic Kingdoms
Kings of Illyria, Ballaios, c. 217 - 182 B.C.

|Illyria|, |Kings| |of| |Illyria,| |Ballaios,| |c.| |217| |-| |182| |B.C.||AE| |16|NEW
Ballaeus is known only from coins. The date of his reign is probably c. 217 - 182 B.C., or earlier. His coins with the title Bασιλευς (king) come chiefly from Risano (Rhizon); those without the regal title chiefly from the island of Lesina (Pharos). These differences may indicate that Ballaios was a local dynast on Pharos before claiming royal status at Rhizon.
