365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 250: Narvi

The Doors of Durin
Narvi was a Dwarf of Khazad-dûm, probably of Durin’s Folk. One of the greatest craftsmen in the Second Age, it was he who built the Doors of Durin for the West-gate of Moria (his close friend Celebrimor wrote the inscription, which read: ‘Ennyn Durin Aran Moria. Pedo mellon a Minno. Im Narvi hain echant. Celebrimbor o Eregion tethant. I thiw hin.’ [‘The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak friend and enter. I Narvi made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs’]).
