This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. It begins with a review of discussions in the preceding chapters. It argues that while to a degree, the reaction among the Latin poets to the Cretan myths is a continuation of the Greek, there is nevertheless a palpable sense that these myths are now fully Roman. They are not borrowed, but absorbed and revived in a new place and time. It seems that the real, contemporary Crete made little impact on the poets.
