The Sirith was a river in Gondor that rose in the White Mountains in eastern Lebennin, and flowed southward. South of the last outliers of the mountains it was joined by a tributary, the River Celos. At the point where it met the Great River Anduin, the port of Pelargir was built.[1]

[edit] Etymology

The name Sirith means "a flowing" in Sindarin.[2]
