Lungorthin was a Balrog mentioned in earlier versions of The Silmarillion.


Like Gothmog, he bore the title of "Lord of Balrogs". He was the captain of security in Angband and, like his superior officer, Gothmog, was fiercely loyal to his lord, Morgoth. It is unknown if he was an earlier version of Gothmog, but he might have been a different Balrog altogether.[citation needed]
