I don't see that there has been any response to this yet.

In "The second division: Appointed times" it says

6:1 With what does a woman go out, and with what does she not go out?
6:6 A. She goes out with a sela coin on a bunion
B. Little girls go out with threads and ships in their ears.
C. Arabian women go out veiled.
