Notes

Until recently this Arabic treatise was non extant; however, it existed in a Latin translation entitled, "Liber de orbe", that has been attributed to Māšāʾ Allāh. According to Taro Mimura, this is a mistribution, and the author is Dūnash ibn Tamīm, a disciple of Isaac Israeli (ca. 855-ca 955).
