Lothlann by Luis F. Bejarano

Lothlann, a "wide and empty" plain,[1] lay to the northeast of Beleriand, beyond the March of Maedhros and Maglor's Gap[2] until it was drowned by the sea at the end of the First Age.

In the Dagor Bragollach the riders of the people of Fëanor were overwhelmed in Lothlann when the dragon Glaurung came and passed through Maglor's Gap.[3]
