[the barbarian chieftain is holding up a skull]
We have killed Babylonians!
[the barbarians cheer, he holds up another]
We have killed Mesopotamians!
[the barbarians cheer]
But we have never had the pleasure of killing... an Akkadian.
[Tied up] May the gods have pity on you, for my brother will not.
[Mathayas storms in and kills the Barbarians]
[Mathayus and Arpid are buried up to their necks in sand. Around them, the guard drops burning scraps of cloth into the ant mounds]
Fascinating, isn't it? The smoke, it causes the fire ants to abandon their homes, you see?
[the fire ants swarm out of the mounds, towards them]
All the sooner to feast on our naked heads.
You think this is funny?
It's a little bit funny, yes. You see, I am about to escape, while you on the other hand are about to die a horrible death, for leaving me to die last night!
Where do you think you're going with my horse?
To Gomorroh. Nothing we say will stop him.
Without your sorceress?
She returned to save the lives of you and your people. I won't let her face Memnon's wrath alone. Step aside.
Akkadian, you're riding to your death. If I let you ride alone... [pause. Balthazar grins]

[walking through the desert, Mathayus, Arpid, and Cassandra hear a huge explosion and a plume of smoke rises. Philos appears, soot-covered and grinning ecstatically]
It works! It works!
My lady! How lovely to see you in this desolate place! Here, let me show you! It works! Come, come!
[Cassandra runs to him]
My lady sorceress... you see? I worked it out. My Chinese formula. My magic powder works! All I needed was salt - peter salt. It was here all the time! This place is just full of it! By the way, do any of you happen to have any water?
