“Echoing Land”. The southern part of Hithlum, a plain some 30 leagues wide at its broadest point and 15 leagues long, enclosed on 3 sides by mountains – the Echoing Mountains, the Ered Wethrin and the Mountains of Mithrim. Dor-lómin was first occupied after the Second Battle of Beleriand by Fingon, who for many years held the land subject to his father. However, in the years between the Dagor Aglareb and the Dagor Bragollach, the race of Men came into Beleriand, and the mastery of the elves was never regained.
