|Reign||c. 358 – 356 BC|
Grabus belonged to the tribe of the Grabaei, although the tribe may have been incorporated into the Taulantii realm of which Grabus became king. After Philip II of Macedon defeated Bardylis (c. 358 BC), the Grabaei under Grabus became the strongest state in Illyria. Soon after the presumed alliance between the Chalcidians (Paeonian king Lyppeius and Thracian king Cetriporis) and Grabus in Athens in midsummer 356 BC, Grabus was defeated by Macedonian general Parmenion. The said alliance was found in a fragment at Olynthus, in unfinished state and thrown into a riverbed suggesting that it was never ratified.
