I've seen I, Claudius enough times to repeat the dialogue. Livia's speech to the gladiators is one of my favorite moments. Sian Phillips had some of the best dialogue throughout. I've also read the books. One of my favorite details -- The mare that Claudius rode in Britain is the sister of the horse Caligula made a senator.

I found a treat. The British royals have amassed an impressive art collection, which can be viewed on-line. Among the pieces is an ancient Roman cameo of Claudius, circa 43-45 AD:
