a flight of steps known only from one passage (Suet. Aug. 72), which states that Augustus lived in a house of Licinius Calvus (q.v.) iuxta Romanum forum supra scalas anularias, and afterwards in Palatio. These steps, therefore, probably led up the side of the Palatine but not so far that a house above them could be called in Palatio. They were evidently named from adjacent shops of anularii, or ring makers (RE i. 2651).
