a crowd, mob, the common people.

HELPS Lexicon excerpt

3793 óxlos – a crowd (throng).  The singular ("crowd"/oxlos) is used about three times more frequently than the plural ("crowds"/oxloi).  The singular and plural should be distinguished (even in translation) because each expresses a distinct nuance.
