The 12th ruler of Númenor, whose Quenya name was Tar-Ciryatan “Shipbuilder, Shipwright” (PM/151). The first element of his name is the objective form of balak “ship”. Therefore, the second element magân most likely means “wright, *builder”. This name appears only in a draft list of the kings of Númenor from the early 1950s, and falls between the conceptual periods of Middle Adûnaic and Late Adûnaic in the terminology used here.
