Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter synthesizes the material of the previous chapters in the broader context of the functioning of third-century imperial administration at the central level. Throughout this study three themes emerge: a shift of priority from center to periphery, a gradual disappearance of the coincidence of status and power, and implicit changes in the administrative system. The chapter discusses these themes in detail in the context of their importance for this study. Looking at developments of power and status relations in the third century as a whole, one can argue that a shift of priority from center to periphery, which manifested itself at several levels between AD 193 and 284, seriously disturbed existing power balances.

Keywords: administrative system; power; status; third-century imperial administration
