Tabʹulæ Toletaʹnæ

.

The astronomical tables composed by order of Alphonso X. of Castile, in the middle of the thirteenth century, were so called because they were adapted to the city of Toleʹdo.

“His Tables Tolletanes forth he brought,

Ful wel corrected, ne ther lakked nought.”


Chaucer: Canterbury Tales, 11,585.
