This 15th-century ankabut is a replacement for a 13th-century original on an astrolabe by Abd al-Karim. The replacement is itself no longer in original condition: it was created to honour the astrolabe's new 15th-century owner and carried his name as part of the ankabut. This has been broken off so that only the title 'Sultan' remains.
