Rabic

Whenever the rastma is added to the list of commas tempered out among Alpharabian temperaments, you end up with Rabic, which splits the octave into 24 equal parts. This temperament is named as such because tempering out both the Alpharabian comma and the rastma automatically tempers out the Betarabian comma.
