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.

‘Verba Geber filii Afla Yspalensis. Scientia species habet quarum melior post scientiam (133vb) sunt digniores et evanescant et destruantur. Completa est eius declaratio. Completus est tractatus nonus et est ultimus libri. (134ra) Hunc librum Geber transtulit in Toleto magister Gerardus Cremonensis de Arabico in Latinum.’
