**213 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **213edo** or **213ed2**), also called **213-tone equal temperament** (**213tet**) or **213 equal temperament** (**213et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 213 equal parts of about 5.63 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/213}, or the 213th root of 2.

213edo is (uniquely) consistent through the 7-odd-limit, but harmonics 3 and 5 are about halfway between its steps. Higher primes are slightly better tuned. Moreover, intervals involving a factor of 5/3 or 15 are quite well approximated. Thus it makes sense to view this as a 2.9.15.7.11.13 subgroup temperament.

The full 13-limit patent val for 213edo is ⟨213 338 495 598 737 788], which tempers out the following commas up to the 13-limit: [3 -10 11⟩ in the 5-limit; [6 -5 -4 4⟩, [10 -11 2 1⟩ and 6144/6125 in the 7-limit; 896/891 in the 11-limit; [12 -7 0 1 0 -1⟩, 325/324, 352/351 and 364/363 in the 13-limit.
