Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus

_ (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.

‘Secundus liber quadrup<ar>titi Ptolomei. <B>ene sufficit nobis id quod universaliter sumus locuti super his in quibus homo debet inspicere — (74) Et postquam in universali modo perfecimus iudicium nativitatum finem in hoc loco huic libro imponere conveniens estimemus. Finis Deo coadiuvante.’

Substantial glosses by the scribe throughout (often more important than the text), which Markowski calls ‘Expositio Cracoviensis Quadripartiti Claudii Ptolomaei’. These glosses end on p. 75.
