Here is the chart/table discussing Manuscript evidence.
||# of copies
||100-44 BC||AD 900
|Plato||427-347 BC||AD 900
|Thucydides||460-400 BC||AD 900
|Herodotus||384-322 BC||AD 900
|Aristotle||450-385 BC||AD 900
|Homer (Iliad)||900 BC
This is a list of some of the most important and trusted documents of antiquity. The closest one to the NT in sheer numbers is Homer's Iliad.
When it comes to the accuracy of knowing what was in the original texts of the books of the Bible, no other literary piece comes close.
