IT’S A FAMILY THING. Aḫīqam is the central figure in a cache of 44 records from Judahtown (āl-Yāḫūdu) that mentions several generations of his family. The Yahwistic names of his father and grandfather point to their Judean heritage. The records mentioning his sons reflect the successes of the Judean community in exile. Here the male lineage of this family is presented with the dates for which each family member’s activity is attested.
