Project icon: lavishly furnished initial letter with a painting of Ptolemy using an astrolab.

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.

Lyon, Antonius Gryphius, 1567

Title page:

‘P. Ovidii Nasonis Fastorum lib<ri> VI, quibus Cl<audii> Ptolemaei Inerrantium stellarum significationes, quod cum fastorum argumento maxime congruere viderentur, in gratiam studiosorum praefiximus. Tristium lib<ri> V. De ponto lib<ri> IIII. Cum permultis exemplaribus, cum impressis tum vero manuscriptis, tanta diligentia ac sedulitate collati, ut multo quam antehae castigatiores in lucem procedant. Lugduni, apud Antonium Gryphium, 1567.’

Classics: Ptolemaica (2-20 (?)); Ovid’s Fasti and other works (21- (?)).


I have seen only samples of this edition online (title page and two other pages), but it is likely to be identical to eds Lyon, Sebastianus Gryphius, 1547 and Lyon, Sebastianus Gryphius, 1554 (see), which have basically the same title page.
