We suggest a new magnetic structure for the high-temperature antiferromagnet found in the Mn3Pt system. Our structure may be interpreted as a 'multiple-q' state and is unique up to a discrete set of analogous states. The exotic features of the previous description; atoms with vanishing moments, unobserved tetragonal symmetry and reduction in spin dimensionality as the temperature is increased, are all absent from our proposed state. Our state is consistent with published scattering experiments.
