Interesting. I am just curious: have you considered the recently discovered star catalogue found in the palimpsest called "Codex Climaci Rescriptus"? Journal for the History of Astronomy 2022, Vol. 53(4) 383–393

Yes! I thought about including some analysis of that data, but unfortunately it is just 4 numbers that don't even give enough information about the position of any single star. Nonetheless, it is a really exciting find.
