Quentalë Ardanómion is a work that Ælfwine states having used as a source for the text Concerning the Dwarves beside Lammas and Dorgannas Iaur. The work is not mentioned elsewhere, nor is its writer known.
The Quenya word quentalë means 'history'. Ardanómion is not quite clear apart the beginning of the word, Arda. Måns Björkman considers -nómion possibly a misreading of the manuscript, because -nornion < norno 'dwarf' would make sense in a work used as a source for a text on dwarves.
