Brithombar was the western of the two Havens of the Falas, at the mouth of the River Brithon, from which it took its name.[2] It was occupied by the Falathrim since the Years of the Trees of the First Age until it was invaded and destroyed[3] in F.A. 473 along with its twin, Eglarest.[4]

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Brithombar comes from the name of the river Brithon, which means "pebbly", and -mbar ("dwelling, house").
