For Lamia's grand-son by the same name, see Domitia Longina.

Lucius Aelius Lamia (before 43 BCE – 33 CE) was the son of Lucius Aelius Lamia, a loyal partisan of Cicero who was made praetor in 43 BCE and died before completing his term.[1] He was consul in the year 3 CE and afterwards served as governor of Germania, Pannonia and Africa. In 22 CE he was appointed imperial legate to Syria by Tiberius but was detained in Rome and never traveled to Syria in person. In the last year of his life, 33 CE, he served as praefectus urbi.[2]

Lamia's connection with the prominent Aelii Tuberones (including Aelia Paetina, second wife of the emperor Claudius) is not known. It is unlikely his father was the same man as Lucius Aelius Tubero, the possible great grandfather of Aelia Paetina.
