According to Elizabeth Zachariadou, the Chronicle has been composed after 1573 and before 1625. Using sources as Bishop Leonardo Giustiniani’s account of the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and especially the second edition of Francesco Sansovino’s Annali Turcheschi, it depicts the life of the Ottoman sultans, as well as the conquest of the Balkans and its impact on South-Eastern Europe. The life and deeds of Mehmed the Conqueror receive special attention. The Chronicle starts in 1373 and ends, with lacunae, in 1513; several fragments deal with the reign of Mehmed III (1595-1603). According to Dean Sakel, Barberinus graecus 111 "is just one variant of the multi-variant Chronicle of 1570".
