"Venetus A ist das berühmteste erhaltene Manuskript der Homerischen Ilias und weiterer Texte. Von manchen wird es als der beste Text dieses Epos betrachtet. Der Venetus A überliefert auch eine Version zum Leben des Homer und Zusammenfassungen des Epischen Zyklus. Der Abschnitt der Kypria ist jedoch fehlerhaft. Verschiedene andere Manuskripte enthalten das Leben des Homer, oder die Zusammenfassung der Kypria oder beides, aber keiner enthält den Rest des Epischen Zyklus wie der Venetus A. Die Editio princeps des Venetus A im Jahre 1788 durch Jean-Baptiste Gaspard d'Ansse de Villoison stellte seinerzeit eine philologische Sensation dar." (Wikipedia).
