ACHSA or ACHSAH ("Anklet"):

Daughter of Caleb (I Chron. ii. 49), who was promised by her father to the man who should capture Kirjath-sepher. Othniel, the son of Kenaz and nephew of Caleb, took it and married Achsah (Josh. xv. 16, 17). In Judges, i. 12, 13, the story is repeated, but here Achsah asks springs of water in addition to the "south land," and both the upper and the lower springs are granted her.
