Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments We cannot merge those 2 names since they are in different languages.

The ones under Marco Túlio Cícero need to have Marcus Tullius Cicero added as primary author. But as Phillip said, we do not merge author names in different languages. https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...
Authors with books published in multiple languages should have their names dealt with similarly to those with pen names. All editions should have the primary author name as the standard or most common Roman (that is, English-language) version of the author's name. Editions published under another spelling of the name or the name in another language should have that name listed as the secondary author. Different editions of a book not having the same primary author can cause quite a few distinct problems. Please keep the primary author for all editions of a work the same.

Looks like someone has done this, as Marco Túlio Cícero is not in primary author position on any book now, and there is a new librarian note.
