[INDOLOGY] Iti praancah

In a technical section of an astrological text (Balabhadra's
Hāyanaratna) I just came across the expression iti prāñcaḥ, which I
don't recall seeing before and couldn't find in Tubb and Boose's
otherwise excellent Scholastic Sanskrit. Am I right in thinking that it
means something like 'so say earlier [authors]'?
A quick web search for the phrase returned seven hits, one of which
does seem to contrast prāñcaḥ with navīnāḥ, in support of my conjecture;
but the others were inconclusive. An old blog post
showed that at least I'm not alone in wondering about it.
Any clarifications or corrections would be much appreciated.
