Lemurians of the East? Hyperboreans? Acheronians? Stygians? etc.

I'm referring to peoples/races who have whethered the previous age before the Hyborian one, with at least some of their cultural inheritance intact. So this would exclude the Cimmerians who are descendants of Atlantis, etc.

This is explained in the essay the Hyborian Age. Dale Rippke also wrote some essays on this. http://my.lulu.com/content/51571

A French-style toilet has toilet in the living room.
My neighbours combine both styles.

One of the pre-human races: the giant-kings (Elder Race), the builders on Dagoth Hill, the winged creatures of "Queen of the Black Coast" and "The Garden of Fear" . . .

I'd have to say one of the eastern races. Khitians, maybe?
