The ennealimma, meaning nine limmas, with monzo [1 -27 18, is a 5-limit unnoticeable comma measuring about 0.86 cents. It is the amount by which a stack of nine large limmas falls short of the octave.

Temperament

Tempering out this comma leads to the 5-limit version of the ennealimmal temperament, which remarkably splits the octave into nine equal parts.
