The particle combination in the headword phrase has the sense of an emphatic denial; see LSJ s.v. mh/n II.5 and Denniston, pp. 338-9. It might be extracted from the quotation given here, though probably not, since earlier lexica (see n.4 below) do not have the quotation.

[2] Adverbial; see LSJ s.v. ou)damw=s.
