Project icon: lavishly furnished initial letter with a painting of Ptolemy using an astrolab.

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.

‘Incipit liber Thebith Bencorath de hiis que indigent expositione antequam legatur Almagestum. Equator diei est circulus maior — in oppositione Solis aut propinqui opposite erunt retrogradi. Expletus est liber Thebith filii Core de hiis que indigent exponere antequam legatur Almagestum.’
