"The beacon! The beacon of Amon Dîn is lit!"
Guard of the Citadel in Minas Tirith (The Return of the King film)

Amon Dîn was the first and perhaps the oldest of the seven Warning beacons of Gondor, located between the Drúadan Forest and the Grey Wood.[1]

History Edit

It was originally used as a fortified position of the city of Minas Tirith keeping watch over north Ithilien and Dagorlad. Prior to the Siege of Gondor, Amon Dîn was the first beacon to be lit.[2]

Etymology Edit

Amon Dîn was Sindarin for 'silent mound'.[3]
