Generally it has been assumed that Ti.Plautius cos 45 was an Aelius Lamia adopted by a M.Plautius (either cos 2 ot his son the pr.24.
Syme (RP IV p 169) suggests he got the praenomen in honor of Emperor Tiberius.
Settipani in his first stemma asserted that a Ti.Plautius cannot be the adopted son of a M.Plautius due to his different praenomen, thus it is his
unknown father M.Plautius Aelianus (a natural son of L.Lamia cos 3 AD)  who is the adopted son of the Consul of 2 AD.
In Settipani's Addenda he now favors that Ti.Plautius was born a Plautius, not an Aelius, and that his cognomen Aelianus is through his mother
a postulated first wife to M.Plautius pr.24. M.Plautius cos 2 AD already had three sons so why adopt one more.
2 L.Fundanius, cos 116, is normally assumed to be the son of cos 80, but taking the gentilicium of the relatively unknown Fundanii seems odd.
Settepani suggests he is the grandson of the cos 80 through his daughter.
Articles: Konrad Kraft: "Q. Aelius L. f. Lamia, Münzmeister und Freund des Horaz", in Jahrbuch für Numismatik und Geldgeschichte, Bd.16, 1966, p.23-31 argues that Q.Lamia is the brother of RE75a, not RE76.
