The headword phrase (also in the Ambrosian Lexicon, according to Adler) is probably generated by Aristophanes, Birds 345, where the Doric accusative o(rma\n foni/an occurs in a lyric passage (web address 1).
[1] This phrase is attested twice in Euripides: Heracles 1184 and Phoenician Women 933.
[2] Probably, again, from tragedy; LSJ s.v. cites many instances.
