Tosefta Sotah 2:6 notes the Halacha of the Korban of a Sotah who was made a sotah by Eidim Zommemin.

I am wondering what their punishment would be.

Seemingly, there should be lashes.

Is it possible to give them lashes, or is it limited to a few cases (See Mishnah Makkot, 1, 1)?

Rambam Hilchot Edut 21:5 states that edim zomemim on kinui ustirah receive lashes.

If they testified that she had in fact committed adultery, then they pay the value of her ketubah and are not given lashes.
