'''Amon Ethir''' ([[Sindarin|S]]. ''[[Amon]]'' "hill" + ''[[ethir]]'' "spy") was raised artificially by the people of [[Finrod]] in the wide plain of [[Talath Dirnen]], a league east of the [[Doors of Felagund]] above the river [[Narog]]. Over the years, trees grew on its flanks, but from its clear summit the watchers of [[Nargothrond]] could watch the lands about with the clear sight of the [[Elves]], and so the hill got its name, Amon Ethir.<ref name=Journey>{{CH|14}}</ref>{{rp|205}}

After the [[Sack of Nargothrond]], the hill still stood, and it was here that [[Niënor]] encountered [[Glaurung]] the [[Dragons|Dragon]]. Having plunged the land into a thick fog of dragon-reek, so that only the hill remained above the mists, he cast Niënor into a deep spell of forgetfulness.  After the departure of the dragon, [[Mablung]] found Niënor in a daze upon the hill and led her away.<ref name=Journey>{{CH|14}}</ref>{{rp|208-210}}
