Adler number: alpha,4494

*au)tokako\n e)/oike tw=|de: a)/krws kai\ kaq' u(perbolh\n e)/oike tw=|de eu)/nous.
The headword phrase is taken to come from comedy: Comica adespota fr. 658 Kock, now 559 K.-A. The glossing comes from Phrynichus (Praeparatio sophistica fr. 279), but the final and nonsensical 'well-disposed' has strayed in from somewhere else.
