The so-called "House of the Ship Europa" is a large house in the Roman city of Pompeii (I,15,3) that takes its conventional, archaeological name from a large graffito of ship bearing the legend 'Europa'.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.

The house was excavated first between 1951 and 1961, and then again in 1972, 1983, and 1975.
