4. TI. PLAUTIUS SILVANUS AELIANUS, offered up the prayer as pontifex when the first stone of the Capitol was laid, in A. D. 70 (Tac. Hist. 4.53
). We learn from an inscription (Gruter, p. 453; Orelli, n. 750) that he held many important military commands, and that he was twice consul.
The date of these consulships, in both of which he was consul suffectus, is uncertain. Baiter, in his Fasti Consulares, places the first in the reign of Claudius, A. D. 47, and the second in the reign of Vespasian, A. D. 76.
