Apollonius of Tyana|
The AntiChrist, (left) the BEAST
from medieval theology (Revelation 13). The beast
from the sea represents the Roman Empire.
The seven-headed beast from the earth symbolizes
Satan and his mouthpieces,
such false prophets and
wonderworkers as Apollonius, Simon Magus,
and other astrologers, priests, magicians. These
'wonderworkers' were common in 96 AD.
