[1] The headword phrase comes from Aristophanes, Clouds 920 (web address 1), and this is the comment of the scholia there (quoting, in the process, the second half of the line).
[2] Likewise or similarly in other lexica.
[3] Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 839 (web address 2). The comment from the scholia which follows is mainly concerned with word-order, but does make explicit the pronoun me, "me" - here wrongly transmitted as the particle me/n, and omitted from the quotation itself.)
[4] Here in the genitive case, evidently quoted from somewhere.
[5] Again this must be a quotation.
