297/256, the Alpharabian ultramajor second, is the basic ultramajor second in the 2.3.11 subgroup. It differs from the 22/19 undevicesimal semifourth by 513/512, and differs from 7/6 by 896/891. As suggested by its name, it is reached by tacking a 33/32 quartertone onto 9/8.
In tonal music, it is a useful paradiatonic interval, as a 1/1-27/22-16/11-512/297 chord can be built on top of a note situated at this distance from the Tonic, and this chord can lead into a 1/1-6/5-3/2 triad built on the note located at 5/4 above the Tonic.
