This is the title that appears on a manuscript of 1 Timothy written in 1308.

The basic sense is not very difficult, but I just want to verify my translate.

I would translate it as -- The Epistle to Timothy A: The Things Paul Discussed with His Colleague Timothy

Am I on the right track.

We're apparently dealing with what Kirsopp Lake and Silva New list as Codex 1739 on p. 191 of their Six Collations of New Testament Manuscripts:  "προς τιμοθεον α' and in later minuscule τιμοθεω εταιρω παυλος διελεξατο ταυτα."  The τιμοθεος you cite is a mistake in transcription.
