333 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 333edo or 333ed2), also called 333-tone equal temperament (333tet) or 333 equal temperament (333et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 333 equal parts of about 3.6 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/333, or the 333rd root of 2.

The equal temperament tempers out 15625/15552 in the 5-limit and 5120/5103 in the 7-limit, so it supports countercata. In the 11-limit it tempers out 1375/1372 and 4000/3993, and in the 13-limit 325/324, 364/363, 625/624 and 676/675, and provides the optimal patent val for the rank-2 temperament novemkleismic, for the rank-3 temperament tempering out 325/324, 625/624 and 676/675, the rank-4 temperament tempering out 325/324 and 1375/1372, and the rank-5 temperament tempering out 325/324.
