The triagnoshenisma, is an unnoticeable 11-limit comma (specifically of the 2.3.5.11 subgroup) with a ratio of 171885556953/171798691840, and a size of roughly 0.88 cents.

Its name comes from two of the main ways of conceptualizing it. Firstly, it is the amount by which a stack of three 1024/891 inframinor thirds falls short of a 243/160 lamb fifth, hence the first part of the comma's name – from the Latin tri- prefix plus the Latin word agnus, with the linking -o- replacing the ending of "agnus". Secondly, it is the amount by which a stack of three 8192/8019 inframinor seconds falls short of a 16/15 minor second, which, since both of these intervals are types of second in diatonic-based interval naming schemes, leads to the second part of the comma's name – from the Hebrew word shení, meaning "second".

Although this comma is unnoticeable, it is tempered out in EDOs such as 29edo, 65edo and 159edo.
