**122 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **122edo** or **122ed2**), also called **122-tone equal temperament** (**122tet**) or **122 equal temperament** (**122et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 122 equal parts of about 9.84 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/122}, or the 122nd root of 2.

122 is flat in tendency, with the prime harmonics from 3 to 13 tuned flat. The equal temperament tempers out 78732/78125 in the 5-limit; 225/224 in the 7-limit; 385/384 and 4000/3993 in the 11-limit; and 351/350 and 364/363 in the 13-limit. It provides the optimal patent val for the 7-limit tritonic temperament and the 11-limit tritoni temperament, and the planar squalentine temperament.

122 = 55 + 67, and so using the 122c val it is the convergent towards 1/6-comma meantone, with a fifth just a hundredth of a cent flatter.
