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.

Michael Foresius (?)
〈Commentum in verbum 56 Centiloquii〉

A short commentary on Centiloquium v. 56 found in a manuscript copied c. 1470 by the physician Michael Foresius, who became rector of the University of Mainz in 1500.


‘(Berlin, SBPK, Hdschr. 95) Nota quod quadre de quibus in 56 verbo Centiloquii fit mentio quibus humiditates moventur non intelliguntur de quartis ecentrici Lune sed de quadris diei naturalis — vel ab angulo terre mors advenit festine.’
