Planetary Characters in Mun.A.4.59

Mun.A.4.59 or the Chetham Library Magical Manuscript, something I wrote about some time ago, contains one version of the Thesaurum Spirituum or Negromancia Baconii, a treatise of ritual magic attributed to Roger Bacon.  Since I`ve managed to focus on the seals of the planets lately, I`ve decided to extract the seals in this manuscript, on page 9v, as far as I can tell. 

Besides Saturn`s characters, which are penned in red, all the characters are drawn in black ink. Jupiter`s character number 6 appears to have been attempted on the first row, abandoned, and then redrawn on the second row.
