ak´sa ( עכסה , ‛akhṣāh ; in some copies עכסא , ‛akhṣā' 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 Jdg in Polychrome Bible).
