Bardylis (also Bardyllis ; ; 448 – c. 358 BC) was a king of the Dardanian Kingdom and probably its founder.

During his reign, Bardylis was able to make the Dardanians one of the most powerful Illyrian states of that time. Under his leadership the Dardanians defeated the Macedonians and Molossians several times and his state reigned over Upper Macedonia and Lynkestis. He also led raids against Epirus but his troops were quickly expelled from that region.

According to ancient sources, Bardylis lived to over 90 years implying that he died around 358 BC. According to these sources, Bardylis lived a long time and was at an advanced age when he faced Philip II of Macedon.

Bardylis was killed in a battle against Philip II of Macedon in 358 BC after Philip rejected his offer of peace based on Bardylis retaining conquered lands. Grabos became the most powerful Illyrian king after Bardylis's death.
