‘Cl<audii> Ptolemaei Pelusiensis mathematici Opus de siderum iudiciis quadripartitum cum breviariis ad singula capita D. Placidi de Titis. Liber primus. Cap. I. Duo innuit cognoscenda in hac arte, familiaritates astrorum per motum acquisitas et eorum ad agendum naturas… Duo sunt, Syre, quibus pervenitur ad astronomicas praedictiones, praecipua quidem et maxima. Unum quod primum et loco est potestate, quo Solis, Lunae et stellarum motuum configurationes — Hic igitur nobis est temporum contemplandorum modus, genera vero decretorum suis temporibus evenientium congerere hoc loco omittemus, ob illum quem nobis scopum proposuimus cum astrorum afficientia generatim perspecta, partilioribus eventibus accommodari iusta ratione possit, si mathematici causam erudite cum ea quae extemperatura nascitur, comparemus. Finis libri quarti.’
