```Dan,

It has to do with the strange way that Show combines Options from the
various plots. Put all of the Epilog material in a single Epilog in the Show
statement. Essentially, that Epilog preempts any of the Plot Epilogs.

bb = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 30}]
Show[bb, Epilog -> {Inset[Graphics[Disk[{.4, .4}]], Scaled[{.2, .2}]],
Inset[Graphics[Circle[]]]}]

I'm not certain what your objective is with the graphics, but it could be
done much more simply and intuitively with the Presentations Application.

<<Presentations`

Draw2D[
{Draw[Sin[x], {x, 0, 30}],
Inset[Graphics[Disk[{.4, .4}]], Scaled[{.2, .2}]],
Inset[Graphics[Circle[]]]},
AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio,
Frame -> True]

Or even more simply without Inset:

Draw2D[
{Draw[Sin[x], {x, 0, 30}],
Circle[{5 \[Pi], 0}, Offset],
Disk[Scaled[{0.2, 0.2}], Offset]},
AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio,
Frame -> True]

Can someone explain why Show drops the original Inset Circle[]?  And how I
could make it not forget?

aa = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 30}, Epilog -> Inset[Graphics[Circle[]]]] Show[aa,
Epilog -> Inset[Graphics[Disk[{.4, .4}]], Scaled[{.2, .2}]]]

bb = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 30}, Epilog -> Inset[Graphics[Circle[]]]] Show[bb,
Epilog -> Inset[Graphics[Disk[{.4, .4}]], Scaled[{.2, .2}]]]
