Ahio (priest)
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
One of the priests who drove the cart when the ark of the covenant was moved from the house of Abinadab in Kiriath-Jearim to Jerusalem (2 Sam 6:3–4; 1 Chr 13:7). The ark had been delivered to Kiriath-Jearim for safekeeping after the Philistines returned it to Israel (1 Sam 6:1–7:2). Ahio was one of two sons of Abinadab. His brother was Uzzah, the man who was killed for touching the ark (2 Sam 6:6–7). Due to Uzzah’s death, David delayed bringing the ark into Jerusalem for three months (2 Sam 6:8–12).

Ahio (Person)
AHIO (PERSON) [Heb ʾaḥyô (אַחְיֹו)]. According to the Hebrew text, 3 different people were named Ahio. However, since the consonantal spelling of Ahio (ʾḥyw) is identical with the word “his brother” or “his brothers,” it is uncertain if all these Ahios should be read with the MT as personal nouns.
