Diyllus (Greek: Δίυλλος), probably the son of Phanodemus the Atthidographer (a chronicler of the local history of Athens and Attica), wrote a universal history of the years 357–297 BC. Only fragments of his work survive. Both the historian Diodorus Siculus and the biographer Plutarch valued Diyllus as a competent authority.
