Attributed to Nicolaus de Benedictis and Jacobinus Suigus at Turin in Pellechet (Ms 9783 (9599)).   The book is certainly printed in Lyon, despite the colophon:  IBE (4792) assigns to Jean de Vingle but see CIBN (B-722 note), suggesting Nicolaus Wolf [ca. 1498] – ISTC.

The author is probably Julianus Pomerius, cf. 'Lexicon für Theologie und Kirche', VIII (Freiburg i.B.:  1936) pp.362, 504-505 (Aquilon 560) – ISTC.
