888edo is excellent in the no-threes 13-limit, and it may possibly have little attention due to its lack of a perfect fifth. The usage of 3/2 is so deeply entrenched into nearly all musical traditions of the world, that temperaments which lack a perfect fifth do not get considered, even if other harmonics are excellently approximated.

888edo tempers out 6656/6655, 105644/105625, 4917248/4915625 and 35153041/35152000 in the no-threes 13 limit.
