In 1st century Rome, Christian slave Demetrius is sent to fight in the gladiatorial arena and Emperor Caligula seeks Jesus' robe for its supposedly magical powers.
The set of the Christian neighborhood in Rome has previously been used in The Robe (1953) (of which this film is the sequel) as the village of Cana. We can easily recognize the well with old broken columns.
Christian. Do you renounce your false god ? This king of an invisible kingdom... who expects to come back some day and rule the earth ?
Demetrius: There is no other king but Caesar. There is no power greater than his, in this world, or any other.
Caligula: By the mercy ...
Caligula was murdered by several conspirators in an underground passageway, not in an arena by one man. Claudius was found hiding behind a curtain, certain he would be murdered as well since he was Caligula's uncle before being proclaimed the new emperor. Finally, there is no mention of Caligula's wife and daughter who were also assassinated.
