ᴱQ. Úrion m.

Another name Fionwe in the Qenya Lexicon from the 1910s and some other early name lists (QL/98; PE13/114; PE14/13). It was also glossed “phaethon”, which is Greek for “radiant, shining” and another name for Helios, god of the Sun, according to the editors of the Qenya Lexicon: Gilson, Hostetter, Wynne and Smith (QL/98). It is an elaboration of Ûr “Sun”, as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Ûr).
