Theon of Alexandria
Commentary on the Almagest (tr. Federico Commandino)

Text ‘(Urbino, BU, Busta 120) Assiduis auditorum exortationibus impulsus Epiphani fili ad ea illustranda quae in Mathematica Ptolaemei… (202r) Cap. 1: De ordine theorematum — ae aequales et az et dupla <ut ae>…’

Content Theon’s preface and the beginning of Book I. In the only known MS, the text ends abruptly due to missing folia.
