_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

‘Ad sanctissimum dominum nostrum Sixtum Quartum pontificem maximum, Andree Trapezuntii, Georgii filii, in paternam Almagesti Ptolomei traductionem prefatio. Evolventi mihi nuper libros patris mei, Georgii Trapezuntii, viri optimi et omni doctrinarum genere insignis… (3v) Magne compositionis Ptolemaei libri a Georgio Trapezuntio e Greco conversi incipiunt. Peroptime mihi videtur, o Syre, qui bene philosophati sunt, speculativam philosophiae partem ab activa separasse. Nam etsi activae accidat parti idoneum hic modum ac finem haec est compositio consecuta.’
