In the map of Wilderland, the eastern goblin-gate has a name: Eyne (I believe - the type is rather small). Is this one of those rare place-names that are on a map but not in the text anywhere? Just curious.

I believe that word on the map is Eyrie, as inthe Eagle's eyrie... but the real question is what is that little blurb between Goblin Gate and Eyrie, looks like "by" (almost)?

Oh crap. I have three copies of the Hobbit, and that freaking thing does not look like a "&" to me in any of them. I can see the "Eyrie" though - I just never pictured it as such.

Curse you Lug! I was going to delete this monstrosity but you had to link it to your thread.
