3125/2916, or the sixix comma (119.839 cents in size) is the comma which defines the sixix temperament, a temperament available in 25edo, 32edo and 43edo.

If treated as a melodic interval rather than a comma, then it is very well approximated by one step of 10edo. This is realized in the neon temperament, with the [21 60 -50, the neon comma being the difference between a stack of 10 3125/2916's and the octave.
