The olympia (monzo: [17 -5 0 -2 -1⟩, ratio: 131072/130977) is an 11-limit (also 2.3.7.11 subgroup) unnoticeable comma measuring about 1.26 cents. It is the difference between the undecimal quartertone (33/32) and a stack of two septimal commas (64/63). Even more interesting is the possible factorization into two 13-limit superparticular ratios: 2080/2079 × 4096/4095. In fact, the olympia is the default interval represented by three minas in the Olympian level of Sagittal notation, from which it gets its name.
