He checks the position of the Sun after it completed one third of it’s diurnal semi-arc – which essentially is using Placidus but also including the daily movement of the Sun itself. After comparing the results he finds that Placidus resembles these results the best. Actually he claims that Placidus gives the best approximation of Placidus. He also mentions a publication by J. Allen Jones jr. who proved that Placidus can be calculated in arctic regions. However, Jones later said he had made a mistake.
