^{4}× 5 × 37**2960 equal divisions of the octave** (**2960edo**), or **2960-tone equal temperament** (**2960tet**), **2960 equal temperament** (**2960et**) when viewed from a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 2960 equal parts of about 0.405 ¢ each.

## Theory

2960edo is a dual-fifth system that is also an excellent 2.5.9.11.17.19 subgroup tuning.

2960dh val ⟨2960 4691 6873 **8309** 10240 10953 12099 **12573**] is the unique mapping that supports both the 80th-octave temperament called mercury, and the coincidentally similarly named mercury meantone, which tunes the meantone steps to 19/17 and 15/14.

In this case, 19/17 is mapped to 474 steps and 15/14 is mapped to 295 steps. This means that the fifth is mapped to 1717 steps, being 14 steps below the patent val fifth, therefore also meaning if such a temperament is realized via the regular temperament perspective, it will not be mapped to 3\2.

From a regular temperament perspective, mercury meantone in 2960edo can be potentially realized as 893 & 2960dh temperament in the 19-limit, as it maps two generators to 19/17 and 2955 generators to 15/14, which is circularly equivalent to 5 steps down in 2960edo (2955 + 5 = 2960), corresponding to Phrygian and Locrian modes. Eliora proposes the name *quicksilvertone* for this regular temperament.
