**1778 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1778edo** or **1778ed2**), also called **1778-tone equal temperament** (**1778tet**) or **1778 equal temperament** (**1778et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1778 equal parts of about 0.675 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1778}, or the 1778th root of 2.

1778edo is consistent to the 9-odd-limit, but the errors of both harmonics 5 and 7 are quite large. It is enfactored in the 5-limit, with the same tuning as 889edo, tempering out [-29 -11 20⟩ (gammic comma) and [-69 45 -1⟩ (counterschisma). In the 7-limit, the equal temperament tempers out 2401/2400 (breedsma) and 48828125/48771072 (neptunisma). It provides the optimal patent val for the 7-limit neptune temperament.

For higher harmonics, it is suitable for a 2.3.11.19.23.43.47.61 subgroup interpretation.
