^{2}× 97**873 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **873edo** or **873ed2**), also called **873-tone equal temperament** (**873tet**) or **873 equal temperament** (**873et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 873 equal parts of about 1.37 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/873}, or the 873rd root of 2.

873edo is consistent to the 7-odd-limit, but the error of harmonic 3 is quite large. The equal temperament is most notable for tempering out the amity comma, 1600000/1594323, in the 5-limit, providing the optimal patent val for it.
