Pontius Pilate is portrayed as having a palace in Jerusalem. Although one would easily assume this, due to his role in the New Testament, he actually resided in Caesarea, which was the Roman capital of the Judean province. There are historical mentions of Pilate visiting Jerusalem, but he never lived there.
The opening credits are presented as an elaborate Terry Gilliam animated sequence of Roman temples being destroyed.
