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.

Naples, Petrus Maria de Richis, 1513

‘([I]v) Praefatio. Consideranti mihi praesul dignissime ac Pandonii generis unicum decus quonammodo auditoribus meis bonarum atrium ac medicinae studiosis prodesse possim… Ad Sylvium Pandonum Boviani episcopum Augustini Niphi Suessani eruditionum ad Apotelesmata liber primus. De potestate planetarum. [text] Sol suapte natura calefaciendi atque aliqua ex parte exiccandi efficaciam habet, fiunt vero haec prae aliis nobis perspicua… [comm.] Duo sunt coeli sive luminaria sive lumina quae graece phosphora sive phota dicuntur, alterum quidem quod graece Helios, latine Sol — tamen usus meus est cum Graeco sine nomine, nam ipse fideliter Ptolomaei verba exposuit brevibus satis. Finis.’
