Patriarch Timothy III of Alexandria (died 481), also known as Salophakiolos (meaning Wobble Cap), was Patriarch of Alexandria from 460 until his death (with an intermission between 475 and 477). He was an adherent of the Council of Chalcedon and opponent of Monophysitism.

In 460 the Emperor expelled the Miaphysite Patriarch Timothy Aelurus from Alexandria and installed the Chalcedonian Timothy Salophakiolos as Patriarch.

In 475, a rebellion brought about the return of Timothy Aelurus but he died only two years later in 477. The Emperor expelled his chosen successor Peter Mongus and restored Salophakiolos to his see, which he retained until his death in 481.
