Merger argument[edit]

copied here from Talk:Marinos of Tyre . Lumos3 (talk) 21:28, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

There are to be 2 article, Marinos of Tyre and Marinus of Tyre . Marinos is likely to be the Greek Spelling and Marinus the Latin. Both have scholarly references to support them. Since the individual is neither Greek nor Roman but Syrian, I suggest we go with the most commonly used and mention both spellings in the article. The Google search for the 2 spellings as a full text string are as follows:-
"Marinos of Tyre" = 979
"Marinus of Tyre" = 3780
  • Note also that Britannica, both the modern version [1] and the 1911 [2] use Marinus .
  • The Columbia Encyclopedia [3] also uses Marinus.
I propose that Marinus of Tyre be the merged article. Lumos3 (talk) 11:05, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
