Avathar

Type: Islands & Coasts

Region: Aman

Meaning: The Shadows

Location: The forsaken coastal lands of eastern Aman south of the Bay of Eldamar; home of Ungoliant.

Description: Thus unseen [Melkor] came at last to the dark region of Avathar. That narrow land lay south of the Bay of Eldamar, beneath the eastern feet of the Pelóri, and its long and mournful shores stretched away into the south, lightless and unexplored. There, beneath the sheer walls of the mountains and the cold dark sea, the shadows were deepest and thickest in the world; and there in Avathar, secret and unknown, Ungoliant had made her abode.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 8, Of The Darkening of Valinor

... eastward the mountains looked out, save for forgotten Avathar, only upon the dim waters of the pathless sea.
