* TooDumbToLive: Dion, who made the deadly mistake of not only revealing that he had a "ring of good fortune" sold to him by a Shemitish thief who stole it from a sorcerer of Stygia, to a former Stygian sorcerer clearly obsessed with finding a lost RingOfPower that was stolen from him by a Shemitish thief, but actually ''showing him the goddamned ring'', which promptly gets him stabinated.

Granted, the narration makes it clear that Dion was barely paying attention to Thoth-Amon's story and only perked up near the end when Thoth mentioned the ring as an afterthought, and Thoth when he realizes Dion actually had the ring is almost beside himself in rage at the sheer ''stupidity'' of the man in question before murdering him.

* ContrivedCoincidence: The fact that Dion just so happens to be in possession of the Serpent Ring that Thot-Amon lost half a world away would be bad enough. That Thot-Amon discovers this on the very night the conspiracy makes its move to assassinate Conan pushes this trope UpToEleven.

* WhiteMagic: Epemitreus is one of the few wielders of such in the Conan saga, and the mark he places upon Conan's sword is powerful enough to slay demons. About the only other good magic users we ever see in the Conan canon don't show up until Literature/TheScarletCitadel (and this one's sort of ambiguous), and Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon.
