However, in his dialogues Pontano inherited the method and the philosophical perspective of his former teacher and enemy (Marsh 1979 pp. 114-115). Likewise, I propose that Pontano used Valla's ideas in addressing the 40 De Rebus Coelestibus lib II sig. D7 r-v: "Quin etiam (quod Poetae faciunt): et Stellas etiam singulas diversis sed suis tamen nominibus vocavere: atque illis maxime nominibus quae quandam per similitudinem aut animalium aut rerum: signorum ipsorum proprieties indicarent: effectionesque quandam per imaginem reserrent: et constituendis hominum corporibus: et animorum applicationibus indicandis.
