_ (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 Iebri exposicionum super Almagesti Ptholomei. <S>cientia species habet quarum melior post scientiam sunt digniores ut evanescant et destruantur. Completa est declaratio eius. Completus est tractatus nonus et ultimus libri Iebri, quem transtulit magister Gerardus Cremonensis in Toleto de Arabico in Latinum. Finitus est 8 die Aprilis anno a nativitate Christi 1494 currente in Cra<coviensi> universitate. Per me magistrum Martinum de Ilkusch, tunc in bursa Ierusalem permanentem et in duabus septimanis est scriptus et completus, videlicet a dominica Iudica usque ad Pascham (colophon added, same hand).’
