Per aspera ad astra: le strane divisioni di P.Rain. Unterricht kopt. 326

Alessia Zangrando

Abstract

New edition of P.Rain. Unterricht kopt. 326 (XIII cent.), a paper sheet containing fragmentary division tables (1/9, 1/10, 1/12 and 1/24). The lack of usual features in the structure of the calculations as well as the presence of specific fractions may indicate its use for astronomical / astrological purposes.
