How to quote this translation

παρῆλθε καὶ ἐς τὸ τοῦ Ὀρφέως ἄδυτον προσορμισάμενος τῆι Λέσβωι. Φασὶ δὲ ἐνταῦθά ποτε τὸν Ὀρφέα μαντικῆι χαίρειν, ἔστε τὸν Ἀπόλλω ἐπιμεμελῆσθαι αὐτόν. ἐπειδὴ γὰρ μήτε ἐς Γρύνειον ἐφοίτων ἔτι ὑπὲρ χρησμῶν ἄνθρωποι, μήτε ἐς Κλάρον, μήτ’ ἔνθα ὁ τρίπους ὁ Ἀπολλώνειος, Ὀρφεὺς δὲ ἔχρα μόνος ἄρτι ἐκ Θράικης ἡ κεφαλὴ ἥκουσα, ἐφίσταταί οἱ χρησμωιδοῦντι ὁ θεὸς καὶ “πέπαυσο” ἔφη “τῶν ἐμῶν, καὶ γὰρ δὴ ἄιδοντά σε ἱκανῶς ἤνεγκα.”

He even went to the shrine of Orpheus after putting in on Lesbos. But they say that Orpheus once enjoyed prophesying there, until Apollo took notice of the fact. For when men were no longer going to Gryneion for oracles, nor to Claros, nor even to the place where Apollo’s tripod is, and Orpheus alone was giving prophecies, his head having recently arrived from Thrace, the god appeared to him as he was giving an oracle and said ‘cease from my activities, since I put up with quite enough when you were singing.’
