 Ossiriand
North of Ossiriand lay the land of Thargelion, and south of the river Adurant later lay the Land of the Dead that Live, where Lúthien and Beren lived their second lives.
Ossiriand was the only part of Beleriand that survived the War of Wrath, but Belegaer the Great Sea broke through the mountain chain at the former riverbed of Ascar, creating the Gulf of Lhûn.
In the Second Age and Third Age the former lands of Ossiriand and Thargelion were known as Lindon, where Rodnor Gil-galad and Círdan ruled.

 - TharGelion und das Einhorn -
So sah TharGelion das Einhorn Unicon zum ersten mal, und weil er seinen Namen nicht wusste, nannte er es -Elenril-, was Sternenglanz bedeutet, leuchtete doch das Fell des Einhorns in den dunklen Tiefen des Verließes wie ein Stern am Nachthimmel.
Das Einhorn erzählte TharGelion, dass es versuchte, die Macht der Klinge zu erwecken, den Inhalt des Pergaments aber nicht entschlüsseln konnte.
Das Einhorn und TharGelion wurden durch dieses Abenteuer gute Freunde.

 Attic calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For instance, at Miletos four of the same month names were in use, namely Thargelion, Metageitnion, Boedromion and Pyanepsion, and the last of these even occupied the same position as month four in both communities.
In particular the waning days 10-2 and the waxing days 2-10 frame the crucial moment where the moon vanishes and then reappears.
A date under this scheme might be "the third (day) of Thargelion waning," meaning day 28 of the month Thargelion.

Thargelion, the next to last lunar month in the Athenian Civil Calendar, normally ran from mid/early/late-May to mid/early-June.
In short, however, in a hollow year Thargelion might run from about May 20 (say) to June 15.
All of this is made even more complicated because the coterminous Conciliar year did not come about until 410 BCE, so the epigraphic record beforethis date is of limited help.

There Mount Rerir, and about it many lesser heights, stood out from the main range of Ered Lindon westward; and in the angle between Rerir and Ered Lindon there was a lake, shadowed by mountains on all sides save the south.
But Thargelion was before called by the Grey-elves Talath Rhúnen, the East Vale.
So Celegorm and Curufin's ward was a pass, which I understand was more easy to defend, due to its steepness and the coldness of the wind that blew there: But it seems that Morgoth had to pay to win that pass.

So Demetrius, with a sum of five thousand talents, and a fleet of two hundred and fifty ships, set sail for Athens, where Demetrius the Phalerian was governing the city for Cassander, with a garrison lodged in the port of Munychia.
By good fortune and skilful management he appeared before Piraeus, on the twenty-sixth of Thargelion, before anything had been heard of him.
Indeed, when his ships were seen, they were taken for Ptolemy's and preparations were commenced for receiving them; till at last, the generals discovering their mistake, hurried down, and all was alarm and confusion, and attempts to push forward preparations to oppose the landing of this hostile force.
