The Villa of Publius Fannius Synistor was built after the middle of the first century B.C. and was ultimately destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. The villa may have been owned by P. Fannius Synistor and/or L. Herennius Florus.

The Villa of Publius Fannius Synistor was discovered in 1899 in the Fondo Vona in Contrada Grotta Franchini. The villa was partially excavated by Vincenzo De Prisco between July 1899 and March 1902. The villa's exceptional Second Style wall paintings were removed and dispersed among various museums, a move that remains controversial. The villa itself is not well understood overall. It is no longer visible.
