‘Prologus libri Ptolomei centum verborum in astrologia. Dixit Ptolomeus: Iam scripsi tibi, Ihesure, libros de hoc quod operantur stelle in hoc seculo… Verbum I. Sciencia stellarum ex te et ex illis est… Expositio. Quod dixit Pto<lomeus>, ex te et illis, significat quod qui res futuras prenoscere desiderat — et fuerint ascendentes in angulo ex angulis regni…’.
