The archytas clan tempers out the Archytas comma, 64/63. This means that four stacked 3/2 fifths equal a 9/7 major third. (Note the similarity in function to 81/80 in meantone, where four stacked 3/2 fifths equal a 5/4 major third.) This leads to tunings with 3s and 7s quite sharp, such as those of 22edo. Adding 50/49 to the list of commas gives pajara, 36/35 gives dominant, 16/15 gives mother, 126/125 gives augene, 28/27 gives blacksmith, 245/243 gives superpyth, 250/243 gives porcupine, 686/675 gives beatles, 360/343 gives schism, 3125/3087 gives passion, and 2430/2401 gives quasisuper. Pajara is discussed under diaschismic family, dominant under meantone family, augene under augmented family and porcupine under porcupine family. The rest are considered below.
