See Takahashi“The Mathematical Sciences” p. 478 who sees in this also one of the causes for the scant preservation of much scientific literature in Syriac due to the absence of a state bureaucracy that would record it. Cf. further Takahashi “Between Greek and Arabic” pp. 17f. where he also refers to the work of Witold Witakowski “Geographical Knowledge of the Syrians” in: The Professorship in Semitic Languages at Uppsala University 400 Years: Jubilee Volume from a Symposium Held at the University Hall 21–23 September 2005 (SSU 24) eds.

Gutas“Translation Movement in Spain” p. 11. The almost lone efforts of Stephen of Pisa possibly active in Antioch in the 1120’s to translate from Arabic into Latin form the exception that proves this rule; see Burnett “The Transmission of Arabic Astronomy” pp. 34–36 with further references.
