Q. Siril loc.

Q. Siril, loc.

The chief river of Númenor (UT/168). This name probably contains sír(ë) “river”, but the exact meaning of the name is unclear. It is identical in form to earlier ᴹQ. siril “rivulet” (Ety/SIR), but given the size of the river, it seems unlikely this is the later meaning.
