''[[The Complete Guide to Middle-earth]]'' incorrectly states the year of his death as {{SA|2251}}. This is because in the ''[[Appendix B|Tale of Years]]'', it said in that year "Tar-Atanamir takes the sceptre". However, Atanamir died in 2221.  2221 is itself an emendation of 2251, and the former (2221) appears in the later tables, while the latter (2251) in the earlier tables: therefore 2251 (properly 2221) should have read "Death of Tar-Atanamir. Tar-Ancalimon takes the sceptre".<ref>{{UT|Kings}}, Note 10</ref>
