How to quote this translation

In his libris de patria Homeri quaeritur, in his de Aeneae matre uera, in his libidinosior Anacreon an ebriosior uixerit, in his an Sappho publica fuerit, et alia, quae erant dediscenda, si scires.

These books investigate Homer’s fatherland, these the true mother of Aeneas, these whether Anacreon was more lecherous or more drunken, these whether Sappho was a public slave, and other questions whose answers would be forgotten if you were to know them.
