Chapter Summary

This chapter provides some concluding remarks on the book Sulla, the Elites and the Empire: A Study of Roman Policies in Italy and the Greek East. The author has developed a parallel discussion of the contexts in which Lucius Cornelius Sulla deployed his initiatives. The approach the author has used to deal with Sulla's attitude to the local elites, his contribution to the development of Roman administration, and his development of several ideological motifs, is mainly contrastive. With the proscriptions and the constitutional reforms Sulla unsuccessfully tried to make a new civil war impossible. In fact, the background to the wars fought in the 40s and in the 30s is closely related to the legacy of his imperial strategy. It is certainly true that the 'example' of Sulla had crucial consequences in Roman political history.
