Brithon was a river of the Beleriand that had its wells in the hills lying north-west in West Beleriand south of the Ered Wethrin.

The Brithon ran to a bay near the haven of Brithombar where it met the Great Sea. Its total length was about sixty miles.[1]


Brithon was a Sindarin word that meant 'gravel' or 'pebbly'.[2]
