STRONGS NT 60: ἀγοραῖος

ἀγοραῖος (rarely ), (ἀγορά), relating to the marketplace;

1. frequenting the market-place (either transacting business, as the κάπηλοί, or) sauntering idly (Latinsubrostranus,subbasilicanus, German Pfiastertreter, our loafer): Acts 17:5 (Plato, Prot. 347 c. ἀγοραῖοι καί φαῦλοι, Aristophanes ran. 1015, others).

2. of affairs usually transacted in the marketplace: ἀγοραῖοι (namely, ἡμέραι (Winer's Grammar, 590 (549)) or σύνοδοι (Meyer and others)) ἄγονται, judicial days or assemblies (A. V. marginal reading court-days), Acts 19:38 (τὰς ἀγοραίους ποιεῖσθαι, Strabo 13, p. 932), but many think we ought to read ἀγοραῖοι here, so G L cf. Winers Grammar, 53 (52); but see (Alford and Tdf. at the passage; Lipsius, Gram. Untersuch., p. 26;) Meyer on Acts 17:5; Göttling, p. 297; (Chandler edition 1, p. 269).

the marketplace

From agora; relating to the market-place, i.e. Forensic (times); by implication, vulgar -- baser sort, low.
