This sort of form of expression is called a reduplication, using the same words twice. It completes the expression [sc. in a manner] prominent and exceedingly robust; for being alarmed he needs a delay.
Greek Original:
Μήπω γε, μήπω: ἐπαναδίπλωσις καλεῖται τὸ τοιοῦτο σχῆμα τοῦ λόγου, τὸ δὶς τοῖς αὐτοῖς ὀνόμασι χρῆσθαι. ἐμφαντικὸν δὲ καὶ λίαν ἐνεργητικὸν ἀπεργάζεται τὸν λόγον: δεδιττόμενος γὰρ δεῖται ὑπερθέσεως.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 267 (web address 1), where the headword phrase occurs (albeit, in the best manuscripts, in reverse order: μήπω, μήπω γε ).
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.
