In Akbitana, the princely city of Shem, a ziggurat-shaped citadel appeared one night, as if from nowhere. After being seduced by Alhambra, Conan was taken inside the mysterious building, which was transported through time and space by a Babylonian wizard named Shamash-Shum-Ukin. The Cimmerian wreaked havoc releasing many of the creatures collected by Shamash-Shum-Ukin in his time-travels, such as Neanderthals and Dinosaurs, forcing the wizard to flee into the Well at the Center of Time as his citadel collapsed. Before leaving the city, Conan publicly accused Alhambra of kidnapping and delivering people to the evil Shamash-Shum-Ukin, so the citizens of Akbitana held her in custody.
Omar and Whazir tried to hire Conan to slay the city's mysterious wizard and plunder his citadel's treasures, but he wanted to do it in his own way. They later met the Cimmerian in the citadel, but Omar was eventually slain by a cave-bear.
