Meaning at random,[1] for the sake of nothing at all.

Οὐδὲν πρὸς ἔπος: ἀντὶ τοῦ ὡς ἔτυχεν, ἕνεκα μηδενός.

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 751, where the headword phrase - effectively meaning 'No deal on the strength of a mere promise' -- occurs. See also the fuller omicron 805; and cf. Anecdota graeca, ed. L. Bachmann, 322.2; Photius, Lexicon s.v. (but without a gloss).
