The Conclusion asks the question: what are we to conclude about Cicero's epistolary use of politeness? The chapter attempts to provide an answer this multifaceted issue and draws together the various features of artistocratic politeness such as conventionalized expressions, the use of affiliative strategies, and the relationship between politeness and politics as observed in Rome's unique political and social landscape.

Keywords:   Cicero, politeness, conventionalized expressions, politics, social landscape
