The 231 equal temperament divides the octave into 231 equal parts of 5.195 cents each. In the 5-limit it tempers out the kleisma, 15625/15552, and in the 7-limit 1029/1024, so that it supports tritikleismic temperament, and in fact provides the optimal patent val. In the 11-limit it tempers out 385/384, 441/440 and 4000/3993, leading to 11-limit tritikleismic for which it also gives the optimal patent val.
