Gellius Egnatius (died 295 BC) was a chieftain of the Samnites at the time of the Third Samnite War in 298 BC, during which he invaded Etruria with a combined army of Umbrians, Gauls, and Samnites. However, when they retreated from the alliance in 295 BC, the Roman Republic consuls Publius Decius Mus the Younger and Fabius Maximus Rullianus led an army to crush his forces. At the Battle of Sentinum, when Decius showed suicidal bravery, his troops rushed forwards and routed the Samnites. Egnatius was among the slain in the retreat.
