Mitchell T. Heaton Father Basil Yender, OSB Freshman Theology Honors 10-10-08 The Ammonites The history of the Ammonites can be traced back to the incestuous relationship between Lot and his younger daughter in a cave near Zoar (Gn. 19:30; Gn. 19:38). Because of this incestuous relationship, Lot’s younger daughter bore a son and named him Ammon, or in Hebrew, Ben-ammi, which means, “The son of my kin,” (Gn. 19:38). Ben-ammi became the father of the Ammonite people. Through excavation of the Amman citadel, humans have discovered that the Ammonites displayed a language similar to that of Hebrew, but the script used was influenced by Aram. Further excavations have uncovered that the Ammonite people had domesticated three types of grasses including emmer wheat, bread wheat, and six-row barley. Overall, excavations have uncovered an impressive amount of information about the Ammonites, but there is still much to be learned (Illustrated Bible Dictionary).
