PAL

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.

Paper, 133 f., a single neat hand, painted initial f. 1r. Blank: 133v. The MS is severely damaged (by moisture?) on the edges, so that the left column of the verso pages and the right column of the recto pages are mostly illegible. The damage seems to be posterior to 1915, since nothing is said about this in Ziegler’s catalogue.

Ptolemaica (single text). Blank: 133v-138v.
