    p. 470-90 below. Wheelock's Latin, 6th edition, revised

    SENTENTIAE (SENTENCES),
    I. Labor me vocat. (labor, a noun, and one of hundreds of Latin words that come into English with their spelling unchanged; such words are often not defined in the chapters but may be found in the end Vocab., p. 470-90 below.)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    (page 6 of Wheelock's Latin, 6th edition, revised)

    What does "below" mean in the above passage?

    It means that it is somewhere below the text you were reading.

    There is only a Latin-English vocabulary section on p. 470-90. There is no other text except vocabulary entries. I don't know why use the word below here. Below what?

    Do you have the text? Without that, I have no idea.

    It means that it comes after this point in this text.

    In all cases like this, you are to imagine that the text starts at the top and ends at the bottom. Whether the book comes in pages, or is an ebook, or an audio version, 'below' always means "later in the work" as Tdol says.
    It also means this if someone writes "See below" on this forum, and the message appears on the next page - although here, "See below" could also have a literal meaning - see the bottom of the screen where similar post are listed.
