Σκερδιλαίδας) or Scerdilaedus (Σκερδίλαιδος). A king of Illyria, who was in all probability a son of Pleuratus, and younger brother of Agron, both of them kings of that country. After the defeat and abdication of Teuta (B.C. 229), he probably succeeded to a portion of her dominions, but did not assume the title of king till after the death of his nephew Pinnes. He carried on war for some years against Philip, king of Macedonia, and thus appears as an ally of the Romans. He probably died about 205, and was succeeded by his son Pleuratus.
