      Et la eſtrella ſiguient delas dos q̃ ſon en el ombro ſinieſtro del boitre uolant a poder en eſta piedra ⁊ della recibe ſu uertud. Et quãdo es en medio cielo, mueſtra eſta piedra mas manifieſta miente ſus obras.
      And the star following the two located in the left elbow of the flying vulture has power over this stone, which draws its virtue from it. And when it is in the center of the sky, this stone more manifestly shows its works.
