καὶ σοφὰ και σαφῆ τὰ τοῦ Ὁμήρου ἔπη. οὐ γὰρ ταῦτα ὅμοια τοῖς ἄλλοις ἔπεσιν.

My translation: The epic poetry of homer is both wise and clear. For this not like others.

would second sentence translated "Not for this is like others."?

Is this correct?

thank you

Νο.  Always translate γὰρ first:  "For these (epic poems) are not like the other epic poems."
