_ (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.

Alexander Paduanus
Expositio super LX enuntiatum Ptolomei de figura XVI laterum

Text

‘(Cesena, BCM, Comunitativa 167.123) Alexandri Paduani philosophi ac medici Foroliviensis Expositio super LX enuntiatum Ptolomei de figura XVI laterum. [text] Ptolomeus: Super aegrotis criticos dies inspice ac Lunae peragrationem in angulis figurae XVI laterum, uni enim eos angulos bene affectos inveneris, bene erit languenti, contra male, si eos afflictos inveneris. [comm.] Adeo varie locuti sunt doctores exponendo hanc sententiam Ptolomei ut vix quid sibi vellit coniectari — et intercidentibus atque vacuis. Et haec pro expositione huius enuntiati breviter dicta sufficiant.’
