|"Aiglos" by Audrey Corman|
Aeglos was the name for the spear of High King of the Noldor Gil-galad which was greatly feared by the enemy. It was carried by the King to the War of the Last Alliance, but it was broken when Gil-galad fell in combat against Sauron himself, on the slopes of Mount Doom S.A. 3431.
