Acts 17:5 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Of the baser sort (ἀγοραίων)

From ἀγορά, the market-place; hence loungers in the market-place; the rabble. Cicero calls them subrostrani, those who hung round the rostra, or platform for speakers in the forum; and Plautus, subbasilicani, the loungers round the court-house or exchange. The word occurs only here and Acts 19:38, on which see note.

Gathered a company (ὀχλοποιήσαντες)

Rev., better, a crowd. Only here in New Testament.
