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.

‘Ioannis Ioviani Pontani liber primus commentationum in centum sententiis Ptolemei ad ill<ustrem> principem Federicum ducem Urbini feliciter incipit. [preface] Tametsi publicarum rerum administratio, bellique gerendi cura deterrere me iure possent, Federice dux fortissime… (2r) [text] Textus Ptolemei. A te et a scientia, fieri enim nequit ut qui sciens est particulares rerum formas pronunciet… [comm.] Commentum Pontani. Nec medici, nec moralis philosophi sola est cognitio, sed quaedam etiam operatio — (145r) [text] … sin non moventur provincialis hostis erit. Rubrica (?). [comm.] … tum stellarum radii vel trahentes eas, vel impellentes pro qualitate aspectus et virium efficatia.’
