How to quote this translation

τῶν Πεισιστράτου παίδων ἦν πρεσβύτατος καὶ σοφώτατος, ὃς ἄλλα τε πολλὰ καλὰ ἔργα σοφίας ἀπεδείξατο καὶ τὰ Ὁμήρου ἔπη πρῶτος ἐκόμισεν εἰς τὴν γῆν ταυτηνί, καὶ ἠνάγκασε τοὺς ῥαψωιδοὺς Παναθηναίοις ἐξ ὑπολήψεως ἐφεξῆς αὐτὰ διιέναι, ὥσπερ νῦν ἔτι οἵδε ποιοῦσι.

(Hipparchus) was the oldest and wisest of Pisistratus’ sons, and besides the many other fine works of wisdom he delivered, he was the first to bring Homer’s epics to this country, and he forced the rhapsodes at the Panathenaea to perform them by turn-taking and in succession, as they still do now.
