How to quote this translation

αὐτός τ’ ἐμαυτὸν ὑπὸ Κλέωνος ἅπαθον
ἐπίσταμαι διὰ τὴν πέρυσι κωμωιδίαν.
εἰσελκύσας γάρ μ’ εἰς τὸ βουλευτήριον
διέβαλλε καὶ ψευδῆ κατεγλώττιζέ μου380
κἀκυκλοβόρει κἄπλυνεν, ὥστ’ ὀλίγου πάνυ
ἀπωλόμην μολυνοπραγμονούμενος.

As for me, I know what I suffered at Cleon’s hands because of last year’s comedy. Having dragged me to the Council Chamber, he slandered me and tongued his lies all over me, and unleashed a Cycloboric torrent of abuse, and gave me a dressing, so I was almost totally destroyed through getting mixed up in his filth.
