Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus

_ (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.

‘Ihesus, Maria, incipit Centilogium Tholomei. Iam scripsi tibi, Ieisure, libros super his que operantur stelle in universo… Astrologus non debet dicere rem specialiter sed universaliter… Expositio. Quidem dixit Thol<ome>us, ex te et illis, significat qui res futuras scire — Intravitque filius Alchalig in Egiptii. Quicquid dicit Tholomeus facere (?) quod malui exponere. Τελως.’
