Modern Greek κομπολόι is derived from κομβολόγιον < κόμβος “knot” + -λόγιο “collection”. It is sometimes said that it is short for the phrase “in every knot I say a prayer”- κόμπο “knot”-λέω “say” > κόμπο-λέω > κομπολόι. This etymology accounts for the fact that κομπολόι evolved from κομποσκοίνι, the Greek word for prayer rope.
Greek worry beads generally have an odd number of beads (often one more than a multiple of four, e.g. (4×4)+1 and so on, or a prime number, (usually 17, 19 or 23) and usually have a head composed of a fixed bead (παπάς “priest”), a shield (θυρεός) to separate the two threads and help the beads to flow freely, and a tassel (φούντα). Usually the length of worry beads is approximately two palm widths.
