Arossiach was a ford on the river Aros, where along it ran a long and hard road that ran through the lands just north of Doriath and finally into Himlad.

The ford was generally thought to mark the bounty between the lands of Dor Dínen and Himlad.[1]


Sindarin for 'Fords of Aros' or 'Aros-ford'.[2]
