just for info:
in rom.
venetic cf DEX
I) a person who doesnt belong to your race, to your nation, a
person who came from somewhere else and considered to be a
foreign in the place where s/he settled. - no etymology
II) old venetian gold coin etymology: from neogreek
"venetikos" and turkish "venedik"

I find very intersting I.
I guess it must be a historicaly explanation, something, an
event which happened and because of this event it remained in
the memory of the folk. Or can be there an another explication
beside the one trough hystorical prisma?
