Domitia was a Roman noble woman who lived in the first century. She was the eldest daughter to Roman Consul and General Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo and Cassia Longina. Her younger sister was Domitia Longina, a future Roman Empress who would marry the future Roman Emperor Domitian. Her paternal aunt was Roman Empress Milonia Caesonia.

Domitia was born sometime towards the middle of the first century at an unknown date. By 63, she married the Roman Senator Lucius Annius Vinicianus, who was a son to the Roman Senator Gaius Annius Pollio.

Vinicianus, in 63 acted as a military commander under his father-in-law in the Euphrates. In 66, there was a conspiracy that involved Vinicianus and his father-in-law to overthrow the Roman Emperor Nero. Vinicianus refused to speak nor prove his innocence to the Emperor and committed suicide in 67.

The Roman Historian Suetonius makes a reference to their son in the account of Domitian which is mentioned in clause 12. The year that Domitia died is unknown.
