Annotationes in librum Ptolemaei de inerrantium syderum significationibus


‘(ed. Urbino 1592) Annotationes in librum Ptolemaei de inerrantium syderum significationibus. Inerrantium stellarum libellum hunc inter Ptolemaei commentarios esse recipiendum nemo est qui dubitare possit — Deinde quod magis est hoc in loco pro occidunt Haedi, legendum oriuntur Haedi, nam et sic Columella et liber a Leonico translatus. Finis.’
