The koinon of the Bylliones centred on the city of Byllis minted its own bronze coins. The first coins came out around 270 BC and continued until 167 BC when the Romans dissolved the koinon.


The principal coin showed Zeus with on the back a horn filled with fruit and a snake entwined around it. Another coin bore the head of Neoptolemus, with a mace, the symbol of Hercules, or an eagle and thunderbolt, symbols of Zeus. Another coin has the head of a nymph on the face, on the back the fire of Nymphaeum.
