Which work does the abbreviation Tim.Pers. stand for?

In the LSJ entry for ἀκτή (A), there is a reference to Tim.Pers.109. Whose and what is that work?

Thanks in advance.
οὐ μέν πως πάντες βασιλεύσομεν ἐνθάδ᾽ Ἀχαιοί:
οὐκ ἀγαθὸν πολυκοιρανίη: εἷς κοίρανος ἔστω,
εἷς βασιλεύς, ᾧ δῶκε Κρόνου πάϊς ἀγκυλομήτεω
σκῆπτρόν τ᾽ ἠδὲ θέμιστας, ἵνά σφισι βουλεύῃσι. (Illiad 2.203-206)

Timotheos' Persians, partially extant on papyrus. Representative of the "New Music" (late 5th-4th cent. BCE), a hot topic right now.

mwh beat me to the punch, but I'm glad, because it gives me the chance to ask why it's a "hot topic right now."

Hard to say exactly, but it was bound to come. It would have come sooner had it not been for Wilamowitz’ and ancient critics’ disdain and general neglect of 4th-century verse. It’s mostly Italian. Not too much can be done without the music.

If you have any questions about abbreviations in the LSJ, they are explained here on the TLG version:

http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/lsj/05-gen ... tions.html
http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/lsj/01-aut ... works.html

LeVen's book is especially good.
