The Pythagorean minor third of 32/27 is the interval between 9/8 and 4/3 which arises naturally in 3-limit just intonation. Compared to the more typical 6/5- with which it is conflated in meantone- this interval is more dissonant, with a harmonic entropy level roughly on par with that of 9/8.
It is 352/351 sharp of 13/11, and tempering 352/351 out equates it with 13/11 and leads to minthmic chords.
