How to quote this translation

καὶ ἐπ᾽ Ἀνακρέοντα τὸν Τήϊον πεντηκόντορον στείλας ἐκόμισεν εἰς τὴν πόλιν, Σιμωνίδην δὲ τὸν Κεῖον ἀεὶ περὶ αὑτὸν εἶχεν, μεγάλοις μισθοῖς καὶ δώροις πείθων·

Indeed he (the Peisistratid Hipparchus) sent a fifty-oared ship for Anacreon of Teos and took him to the city for Anacreon, and he always had Simonides of Ceos about him, enticing him with great wages and gifts.
