Mount Athos - help needed please


Good morning,
I am trying to decipher this cover but my limited knowledge of all things Russian means I need some help. The cover is sent from Mount Athos (Turkish post office so before 1912-13?). It seems to have been refused by the recipient. Can anyone help me please with deciphering the markings, especially the boxed one on the reverse, as well as the meaning of the label used to repealed the envelope?
I would be most grateful.
Many thanks,
Adrian

Boxed marking "Opened in the Odessa Customs as containing printed matter (printing unit) in Russian is returning back abroad".
Green official paper seal of the Odessa customs.
The cover was addressed to Bazarnaya-Kensha of Penza province, but according to the markings it didn't reach the addresse and was sent back to Mount-Athos from Odessa.
