936/935, the ainos or ainic comma, is a 17-limit unnoticeable comma with a size of roughly 1.85 cents. It arises as the amount by which a stack consisting of 18/17 and 13/11 exceeds 5/4, as well as the amount by which a stack consisting of 10/9 and 17/16 falls short of 13/11. Moreover, it is also the interval that differentiates the tannisma (273/272) from the keenanisma (385/384), and the septendecimal kleisma (256/255) from the minthma (352/351). Thus, tempering out this comma is a good way to extend minthmic and gentle harmonies to the 17-limit, as well as a good way to bring keenanismic and tannismic harmonies together.

Temperaments
When tempered out in the full 17-limit, the resulting temperament is called the ainic temperament, or in the 2.3.5.11.13.17 subgroup, the ainian temperament. Both are characterized by the presence of essentially tempered chords called ainic chords.
Etymology
This comma was named by Aura in 2020. Its names come from the Ancient Greek word aînos ("tale", "story" or "fable"), which is fitting due to the comma serving as a viable 17-limit extension to minthmic temperaments, among others. Funny enough, this same Greek word is the source of the Ancient Greek word aínigma ("riddle"), from which we ultimately get our word "enigma", and this is also fitting due to the sheer difficulty that was involved in the initial process of working out both the name and the uses of this comma in a short span of time.
