The smaller-scale map that accompanies The Lord of the Rings and Unfinished Tales shows the Celos flowing into the Sirith from the east, while the large-scale contour map of Gondor shows it flowing from the west. A brief reference in Unfinished Tales suggests that the Celos was the next river eastward from the Gilrain, which would make the large-scale map correct.[note 1] Christopher Tolkien noted the error of the small-scale map in The Treason of Isengard; the correct location of the Celos is thus being the western tributary.
- ↑ The river's name on that map, incidentally, is spelled Kelos, but the pronunciation is the same in either case.
