The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) observed the middle-aged pulsar PSR 0656+14 for \$\sim\$ 80 ksec in 1993 February. While the exposure was not deep enough to detect PSR 0656+14 in the short wavelength (SW) band of the spectrometer the pulsar was detected in the Deep Survey (DS) photometer. The flux from the DS photometer is used to constrain the parameters N\$_H\$, the equivalent neutral hydrogen column density, and T\$_S\$, the surface temperature of the neutron star. Results are compared to previous measurements from other experimants.
