She carried, in her hands, several strings of beads, simple necklaces, with small, wooden, colored beads. They were not valuable.
She held the necklaces up for me to see. Then, with her finger, moving them on their string, she indicated the tiny, colored wooden beads. “Da Bina,” she said, smiling. Then she lifted a necklace, looking at it. “Bina,” she said. I then understood that ‘Bina’ was the expression for beads, or for a necklace of beads. The necklaces and beads which Eta produced for me were delights of color and appeal; yet they were simple and surely of little value.
I went to the cave, Eta following. I lifted one of the chest’s covers. I took from the chest a string of pearls, then one of pieces of gold, then one of rubies. “Bina?” I asked, each time. Eta laughed. “Bana,” she said, “Ki Bina. Bana.” Then, from another box, Eta produced another necklace, one with cheap glass beads, and another with simple, small wooden beads. She indicated the latter two necklaces. “Bina,” she said, pointing to them. Bina, I then understood, were lesser beads, cheap beads, beads of little value, save for their aesthetic charm. Indeed, I would later learn that bina were sometimes spoken of, derisively, as Kajira bana. The most exact translation of ‘bina’ would probably be “slave beads.” They were valueless, save for being a cheap adornment sometimes permitted imbonded wenches.
