From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 267 (web address 1), where the headword phrase occurs (albeit, in the best manuscripts, in reverse order: mh/pw, mh/pw ge).
The last phrase in the scholion/gloss refers to the character who utters these words, Strepsiades, who is apprehensive about the imminent arrival of the Clouds.
