the name given to the recently discovered office or headquarters of the kalatores, or freedmen attached to the pontifices and flamines as assistants (Mommsen, Staatsrecht i. 359), which was in the forum near the regia. In 1899 a fragment of a marble epistyle was found built into the foundations of a mediaeval wall at the south-west corner of the regia, with part of an inscription. The other part of this epistyle had been found in 1546 (Jahrb. d. Inst. 1889, 23 ; LS ii. 200), and the complete inscription reads: in honorem domus Augustae kalatores pontificum et flaminum (CIL vi. 32445; NS 899, 128; BC 1899, 146; Mitt. 1901, 10-12; 1902, 66; Klio ii. 279, No. 66; HC 195). This epistyle is 3.50 metres long, and probably spanned the entrance of the schola, but the building cannot be identified with any existing remains (cf. however, AJA 1912, 390). It may possibly have been restored in the time of Septimius Severus (Mitt. 1914, 7-11).
