Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Nouns and Phrases Strong's Number: g3793 Greek: ochlos

Company (Noun and Verb):

"a throng of people, an irregular crowd," most usually "a disorganized throng;" in Act 6:7, however, it is said of a company of the priests who believed; the word here indicates that they had not combined to bring this about. The RV usually translates this word "company" or "multitude." Cp. B, Note 3.
See COMMON, CROWD, MULTITUDE, and Trench, Syn. xcviii.

A-3 Nouns and Phrases Strong's Number: g4849 Greek: sumposion

Company (Noun and Verb):

lit. "denotes a drinking together (sun, "with," pino, "to drink"), a drinking-party;" hence, by metonymy, "any table party or any company arranged as a party."

A-4 Nouns and Phrases Strong's Number: g2828 Greek: klisia

Company (Noun and Verb):

akin to klino, "to recline," primarily means a place for lying down in, and hence a "reclining company," for the same purpose as No. 3. It is found in the plural in Luk 9:14, corresponding to Mark's word sumposia (No. 3, above), signifying "companies reclining at a meal."

A-5 Nouns and Phrases Strong's Number: g4128 Greek: plethos

Company (Noun and Verb):

Company (Noun and Verb):

akin to No. 6, "a throng or crowd," is found, in some mss., in Rev 18:17, "all the company in ships," AV. Homilos denotes the concrete; homilia is chiefly an abstract noun.

(4) In Act 21:8, the phrase translated "that were of Paul's company" is absent from the best texts.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g4874 Greek: sunanamignumi

Company (Noun and Verb):

lit., "to mix up with" (sun, "with," ana, "up," mignumi, "to mix, mingle"), signifies "to have, or keep, company with," 1Cr 5:9, 11; 2Th 3:14.

(3) Ochlopoieo, lit., "to make a crowd" (ochlos, "a crowd," poieo, "to make"), is translated "gathered a company," in Act 17:5, AV; the RV corrects this to "gathering a crowd."
