81/70, the septimal ultramajor second is a 7-limit interseptimal ratio of about 253 cents. It is sharp of a major second 9/8 by a septimal quartertone 36/35, sharp of a supermajor second 8/7 by a syntonic comma 81/80, and flat of a subminor third 7/6 by a sensamagic comma 245/243.
Notice it is also flat of the just minor third 6/5 by a subminor second 28/27. For this fact it is useful in the sensamagic dominant chord where it functions as a dissonance yet to be resolved up to the minor third. The canou temperament targets this progression and uses it as one of the generators.
Approximation
It is near-perfectly approximated by 19edo (4\19), with an error of 0.05 cents, and hence equally well done by the enneadecal temperament.
