Agha Gbenren Ulaba vbe Edo - Writing Numbers in Edo / Mathematics of Counting in Edo language

Illustration One – Igiemwin n'okaro - Mathematics Of Counting In Edo Language


(A) 11 - Owọrọ - Eleven

(B) 111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen [11 + 100 ] - One hundred and eleven

(D) 1111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen [11 + 100 + 1000 ]
One thousand one hundren and eleven

(E) 11111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ [11 + 100 + 11,000 ]

Eleven thousand one hundren and eleven

(Ẹ) 111111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen[11 + 100 + 111,000]

One Hundred and eleven thousand one hundren and eleven

(F) 11111111 - Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen yan Ẹbo owọrọ

[11 + 100 + 111,000 + 11,000,000]

Eleven million, one hundred and eleven thousand one hundred and eleven

(G) 111111111
Owọrọ yan iyisen yan arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen yan Ẹbo owọrọ yan iyisen

[11 + 100 + 111,000 + 111,000,000]
One hundred and eleven million, one hundred and eleven thousand, one hundren and eleven

“Yan” or “yaen” or “yanren” means add / addition.

Two digits or numbers together without “yan” or “yaen” refers to multiplication of said numbers. e.g. as in “Arriaisen owọrọ” and “Ẹbo owọrọ


Accents are necesary in 11(owọrọ) and 1000000 (Ẹbo) above to identify and apropriate vowel sounds.


(Iyi = 20 ; Isen = 5)

Iyisen = 100 (20 x 5)

Owọrọ yan iyisen = 111

Uri / Arria / Iyisen eva = 200

Arriaisen = 1000 (200 x 5)

Arriaisen owọrọ = 11000

Arriaisen owọrọ yan iyisen = 111,000

Ẹbo owọrọ yan iyisen = 111,000,000

Understanding Money In Edo By Uwagboe Ogieva

Vbe n'a ya kẹ igho vbe Ẹdo n'ogben Uwagboẹ Ogieva


Before the coming of the European or English pounds and shillings, Edo people were using cowries - 'ikpigho', as a form of money in economic, trade and social transactions. Over time, this was done away with and a new form of money was introduce.
Today Edo people use 'ENAIRA' and "IKOBO” (Naira and Kobo). However, Edo system of counting money is a beat different numerically. In Edo, 10 kobo (10 ikọbọ) is equal to Isele ọkpa, 100 kobo equal to Isele igbe.

1 kobo = 1 ikọbọ | 10 kobo = (10 ikọbọ) - Isele ọkpa | 100 kobo = Isele igbe

[ọkpa = 1, Ikpen/Ikpon = 2, igbe = 10, ẹkpo = 200, Iyisen = 100, Arriaisen = 1000]

  • 1 naira = Isele igbe
  • 2 naira = Ikpen ọkpa
  • 3 naira = Ikpen ọkpa vbe Isele igbe (ọkpa vb’igbe)
  • 4 naira = Ikpen eva
  • 5 naira = Ikpen eva vbe Isele igbe (eva vb’igbe)
  • 6 naira = Ikpen eha
  • 7 naira = Ikpen eha vbe Isele igbe (eha vb’igbe)
  • 8 naira = Ikpen enen
  • 9 naira =Ikpen enen vbe Isele igbe (ọkpa vb’igbe)
  • 10 naira = Ikpen isen
  • 10 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon isen
  • 20 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon igbe
  • 30 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon ekesugie
  • 40 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon ugie
  • 50 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon isen yan ugie
  • 60 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon ọgban
  • 70 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon isen yan ọgban
  • 80 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon iyeva
  • 90 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon isen yan iyeva
  • 100 naira = Ikpen/Ikpon ekigbesiyeha
  • 200 naira = Ikpen iyisen / Ẹkpo ọkpa
  • 300 naira = Ẹkpo ọkpa vb'ukhionmwen
  • 400 naira = Ẹkpo eva
  • 500 naira = Ẹkpo eva vb'ukhionmwen
  • 600 naira = Ẹkpo eha
  • 700 naira = Ẹkpo eha vb'ukhionmwen
  • 800 naira = Ẹkpo enen
  • 900 naira = Ẹkpo enen vb'ukhionmwen
  • 1000 naria = Ẹkpo isen
  • 2000 naira = Ẹkpo igbe
  • 3000 naira = Ẹkpo ekesugie
  • 4000 naira = Ẹkpo ugie
  • 5000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan ugie
  • 6000 naira = Ẹkpo ọgban
  • 7000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan ọgban
  • 8000 naira = Ẹkpo iyeva
  • 9000 naira = Ẹkpo isen yan iyeva
  • 10000 naira = Ẹkpo ekigbesiyeha
