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.

‘Ioannis Ioviani Pontani commentationum in centum sententiis Ptolemaei ad Federicum Urbini ducem lib<er> primus. Tametsi publicarum rerum administratio, bellique gerendi cura deterrere me iure possunt, Federice dux fortissime… (Aiiv) 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 efficatia. Finis.’
