As the catalogue states, ff. 4r-87r is a work entitled "περὶ τῶν συνόδων τοῦ ἁγίου Μαξίμου..."  and on ff. 87r is the "Ἑξήγησις τῶν ἱερῶν κανόνων.." by John Zonaras.  Pinakes lists a more detailed list of authors and fragments that are included in the ms., these are not mentioned in the catalogue.

f. 358v. has a very interesting family tree in the shape of a cross and on 258r there are triangles representing family lines likely representing canonical rulings on marriage between relatives.

f. 368v. has a post-script in a different  hand giving the exact date of composition (1232) and that the monk Methodios of the Veljusa (Ἐλέουσα) monastery commissioned the ms.
This is the entire ms.
