Smith's Bible Dictionary
Achsah

(ankle-chain, anklet), daughter of Caleb. Her father promised her in marriage to whoever should take Debir. Othniel, her father's younger brother, took that city, and accordingly received the hand of Achsah as his reward. Caleb added to her dowry the upper and lower springs. (B.C. 1450-1426.) (Joshua 15:15-19; Judges 1:11-15)

ATS Bible Dictionary
Achsah

The daughter of Caleb, given in marriage with a large dowry to his nephew Othniel, as a prize for taking the city Debir, Joshua 15:15 17; Jude 1:12,13.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Anklet, Caleb's only daughter (1 Chronicles 2:49). She was offered in marriage to the man who would lead an attack on the city of Debir, or Kirjath-sepher. This was done by Othniel (q.v.), who accordingly obtained her as his wife (Joshua 15:16-19; Judges 1:9-15).
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
ACHSAH

ak'-sa (`akhchah; in some copies `akhca' in 1 Chronicles 2:49), ("anklet"): The daughter of Caleb whom he gave in marriage to his younger kinsman Othniel the son of Kenaz, as a reward for smiting Kiriath-sepher (Joshua 15:16 Judges 1:12). Caleb, the narrative says, established Achsah in the South-country, and in addition, at her asking, gave her certain important springs of water-the "upper basins" and the "nether basins." Professor G. F. Moore identifies these with the groups of springs in Seit ed-Dilbeh (notes on Jud in Polychrome Bible).
