The Samnite House originally occupied the entirety of the southern part of Insula V and included a three-sided peristyle. The plot was subdivided in the first century A.D. The house is noted for its well-preserved atrium that still stands to two stories (three sides with pilasters and interspersed latticed fences and one side with a loggia).
