Things of Middle-earth


Type: Miscellaneous

Meaning: West-wings

Description:A ship, captained by Vëantur, Captain of the King's Ships under Tar-Elendil, on which Aldarion took his first (and Vëantur's last) voyage to Middle-earth:

Of [Aldarion's] first journey little is known, save that he ... journeyed far in Lindon and the west of Eriador.... He did not return for more than two years ...

There was joy in Rómenna and Armenelos when men saw the great ship Númerrámar (which signifies "West-wings") coming up from the sea, her golden sails reddened in the sunset. ...

Vëantur did not again voyage from Númenor; but the Númerrámar he gave in gift to Aldarion.
