    This PDF file, "Reference to space in colonial Quiché":

    ...has a reference to the cuatrillo and tresillo, uses a Greek lower case
    "ε" (U+03B5) for tresillo and a "g" for cuatrillo.

    "The spelling in these three editions is based on the conventions of
    16th- and 17th-century Spanish. It is defective..."

    "Special graphemes are used inconsistently for glottalized consonants..."

    Words like "cuatrillo" are also used for musical notation in Spanish,

    From this page, quadruplet is expressed as cuatrillo in Spanish:
    ES: cuatrillo, I: quartina, F: quartolet, D: Quartole, NL: kwartool, DK:
    S: kvartol

    Best regards,
