Aristophanes [writes]: "some far-travelling shout". In effect, something right and elevated. It is a beginning of a song; just like the [one that begins] "city-sacking Athena".

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 967. In that line Aristophanes does use the phrase attributed to him here, and, before it, the phrase "terrible city-sacking Pallas". Both appear to be quotations from earlier poetry, possibly by sigma 1095; Dover (below) 215 has a long, inconclusive note.
