N. Nargos loc.
Name of a tower near Cirith Ungol in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, along with its companion Gorgos (TI/344). The meaning of this name is unclear, but it might be a precursor to later Narchost, one of the towers at the entrance to the Gates of Mordor in the published version of The Lord of the Rings.
See S. Narchost for further discussion.
