The Suda chooses to reproduce the shortest and least informative of a series of scholia on Aristophanes, Acharnians 1 (web address 1), which does not even make it clear that o(/sa is here exclamatory.
[1] This sentence is quoted - or rather, it is misquoted in the same way as here, with e)mautou= omitted from the Aristophanic text - in a remarkable personal statement by the lexicographer in pi 44 in which he laments the evil effects of envy, seeing himself as a victim of it.
