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.

Launch of PAL Website

The website of the project Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus has been launched on August 15, 2014. For the time being it contains basic information on the project and the people working on it. In the future it will be developed into a major research tool for scholars interested in the Ptolemaic tradition and will serve as a communication interface for these scholars.
