The so-called "Samnite House" is a domus in Herculaneum that originally dates to the second century B.C., making it one of the oldest buildings discovered at the site.

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).
