Brouwer's Danza del Altiplano question

Post by doralikesmath » Sat Aug 26, 2017 9:00 am

Hello everyone, I have a question on a musical notation in Brouwer's Danza del Altiplano. At bar 17, there is an abbreviation (may be) as in the attachment. Could you please tell me what's the meaning of it? Thanks.

And just to be even more clear, the point of that marking is that a normal "A Tempo" simply restores the tempo prior to any immediately preceding change, whereas To. Io. specifies the original tempo at the start of the piece.
