This table has three columns: see Table 11. The first is for the argument, the number of days (from 0d to 365d) since the date the Sun reached apogee in a given year. The second displays the true motion of the Sun (in physical signs, degrees, minutes, and seconds) corresponding to this time, and the third gives the hourly solar velocity in minutes and seconds (from 0;2,23°/h at 0d and 365d to a maximum of 0;2,34°/h at about 182d).
