Glosa super 60 propositionem Centilogii Ptholomei

Text ‘(London, BL, Harley 13) Incipit glosa Hispalensis super 60 propositionem Centilogii Ptholomei que incipit sic: Albaharan etc. In oppositione ista Ptholomeus tria tangit. Primum est de occasione dierum creticorum, secundum de diebus indicativis crisis — et acuta ut de magna causa et brevi.’

Content A commentary on Centiloquium, v. 60 in Plato of Tivoli’s translation.

Origin Unknown. The earliest MS (London, BL, Harley 13), copied c. 1300, attributes the text to one ‘Hispalensis’, while Vatican, BAV, Pal. lat. 1116 ascribes it to ‘Linco<l>nensis’, i.e. Robert Grosseteste.
