**247 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **247edo** or **247ed2**), also called **247-tone equal temperament** (**247tet**) or **247 equal temperament** (**247et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 247 equal parts of about 4.86 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/247}, or the 247th root of 2.

Prime harmonics 3, 5, 7, and 11 are all about halfway between 247edo's steps, so 247edo lacks consistency to the 5 and higher odd limits. It is the largest numbered edo that the closest approximation to 3/2 is flatter than that of 12edo (700¢, compton fifth). 247edo tunes the 2.9.13.15.21 subgroup very well, as every other step of the monstrous 494edo.

The 247cg val has lower errors: this edo has a flat tendency, so its tuning accuracy may be improved by an octave stretch of approximately +0.8 ¢. 247cg is a good tuning for miracle, tempering out 225/224 and 1029/1024 in the 7-limit, 243/242, 385/384, 441/440, and 540/539 in the 11-limit, 847/845 in the 13-limit, and 375/374 and 561/560 in the 17-limit. Alternatively, using the patent val, 247edo tempers out 126/125, 243/242 and 1029/1024 in the 11-limit, supporting the hemivalentino temperament (31 & 61e).

### Subsets and supersets

Since 247 factors into 13 × 19, 247edo contains 13edo and 19edo as its subsets. 494edo, which doubles it, provides excellent correction to all the lower prime harmonics.
