Syntonic-kleismic equivalence continuum
The syntonic-kleismic equivalence continuum (or syntonic-enneadecal equivalence continuum) is a continuum of 5-limit temperaments which equate a number of syntonic commas (81/80) with the 19-comma ([-30 19⟩).
All temperaments in the continuum satisfy (81/80)^{n} ~ [-30 19⟩. Varying n results in different temperaments listed in the table below. It converges to meantone as n approaches infinity. If we allow non-integer and infinite n, the continuum describes the set of all 5-limit temperaments supported by 19edo (due to it being the unique equal temperament that tempers both commas and thus tempers all combinations of them). The just value of n is approximately 6.376…, and temperaments having n near this value tend to be the most accurate ones.
This continuum can also be expressed as the relationship between 81/80 and the enneadeca ([-14 -19 19⟩). That is, (81/80)^{k} ~ [-14 -19 19⟩. In this case, k = 3n - 19.

Oviminor
- See also: Ragismic microtemperaments #Oviminor
Oviminor is named after the facts that it takes 184 minor thirds of 6/5 to reach 4/3, the Roman consul was Eggius in the year 184 AD, and the Latin word for egg is ovum, and with prefix ovi-. It sets a new record of complexity for a chain of nineteen 6/5's past egads, though it is less accurate.
