It is a proverb [applied] to those accommodating and magnifying themselves against their opposites, as Didymus says.[1]
Greek Original:
*tou\s e(tai/rous tragw|dou\s a)gwniei=tai: paroimi/a e)sti\n e)pi\ tw=n a(rmozome/nwn kai\ semnopoiou/ntwn e(autou\s pro\s ta\ e)nanti/a, w(s *di/dumo/s fhsi.
Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting in the first instance on Lycurgus fr. 17 Conomis.
[1] Didymus p.321 Schmidt (but not 'a proverb' in the sense of something taken up by the paroemiographers). The Suda version of this has e(tai/rous, 'comrades', but Harpok. shows that it should be e(te/rous, 'other(s)' (which I have translated here).
