1. A quote in Latin

Cum taurum ingentem in arenam misisset, exissetque ad eum feriendum venator neque productum decies potuisset occidere, coronam venatori misit, mussantibusque cunctis, quid rei esset quod homo ineptissimus coronaretur, ille per curionem dici iussit: ‘Taurum totiens non ferire difficile est’.
— Historia Augusta, Gallieni duo XII.3–4

2. Videos in Latin

Chelmsford 123

This is a British sitcom from the late 1980's set in Roman Britain. During the first episodes there is quite a lot of Latin dialogue in Latin and it's rather amusing! The link is of a video with the Latin scenes cut together.
