Why 314 dpi?

Here is a 2007 thread that mentions this weird number in Olympus photos, marked 314 dpi, but it does not answer the question why?

Did Olympus once have a printer that used this base resolution?

Is it metric based? Multiplying by the number of centimeters in an inc, =797.56, so 315 would have been more logical.

Maybe it's just a weird Oly thing. Not that dpi resolution matters much, except when printing.
