The postscript concludes by looking briefly at Ennius’ post-textual afterlife. It recaps the overall argument of the book and revisits the issue of fragmentary texts and the possible distortions of reception, arguing for the importance of entertaining hypothetical contexts for the fragments even as we accept that they must remain necessarily provisional. It ends with some suggestions for completing the story.
