Mount Anthor (Legends)

Mount Anthor is a mountain found southwest of the city of Winterhold, in the Winterhold region of Skyrim. Ancient Nords built a Word Wall at the summit of the mountain.

The mountain is most famous as the site of the battle between Olaf One-Eye and the dragon Numinex during the War of Succession.[1] The mountaintop once again became a dragon lair after the return of Alduin in 4E 201, displacing the band of warlocks who had previously occupied it. The jarl of Winterhold put out several bounties in an attempt to drive off the dragons.[2]

Sometime circa 4E 201, the Forgotten Hero and a Dunmer sorceress named Laaneth killed a dragon at Mount Anthor and retrieved its skull at the request of Alfe Fyr.[3]
