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.

Basel, Andreas Cratander, 1531

‘Ioan<nis> Ioviani Pontani commentationum in centum Claudii Ptolemaei sententias ad Federicum Urbini ducem liber primus. Tametsi publicarum rerum administratio, bellique gerendi cura deterrere me iure possunt, Federice dux fortissime… (2) I. Ptolemaeus. A te et a scientia, fieri enim nequit ut qui sciens est particulares rerum formas pronuntiet… Pontanus. Nec medici, nec moralis philosophi sola est cognitio, sed quaedam etiam operatio — tum stellarum radii vel trahentes eas, vel impellentes pro qualitate aspectus et virium efficacia. Commentariorum Io<annis> Iov<iani> Pontani in centum Ptolemaei sententias. Finis.’
