Nero committed suicide on June 9, 68 AD. If St. John the Divine was referring to Emperor Nero as the "1st Beast", then John would have had to have written The Revelation in 68 AD or before, although there would have been some time go by after Nero's death before he would learn about it while exiled/banished (imprisoned?) on the Island of Patmos. But 68 AD conflicts with the generally accepted date of the Apostle John(?) receiving his vision...
(Revelation 1:9) a rugged and bare island in the Aegean Sea, 20 miles south of Samos and 24 west of Asia Minor. It was the scene of the banishment of St. John in the reign of Domitian, A.D. 95. Patmos is divided into two nearly equal parts, a northern and a southern, by a very narrow isthmus where, on the east side are the harbor and the town. On the hill to the south, crowning a commanding height, is the celebrated monastery which bears the name of "John the Divine." Halfway up the descent is the cave or grotto where tradition says that St. John received the Revelation.
An island of the Aeagean sea, to which the apostle and evangelist John was banished by Domitian, A. D. 95, Revelation 1:9. It is a rocky and desolate island, about twenty-eight miles in circumference, with a bold and deeply indented shore; and was used by the Romans as a place of banishment for many criminals. It lies between Samos and Naxos, about forty miles west by south from the promontory of Miletus; and contains at present some four thousand inhabitants, mostly Greeks. Its principal port is a deep bay on the northeast side; the town lying on a high and steep hill, the summit of which is crowned by the old and castle-like monastery of St. John. Half way down the hill is a natural grotto, now covered by a Greek chapel, school, etc. In this cave, over-looking the sea and its islands towards his beloved Ephesus, tradition says that John saw and recorded his prophetic visions. The island is now called Patino; and the port Patmo, or San Giovanni di Patino.
pat'-mos (Patomos; Italian: San Giovanni di Patino): A Turkish island of the group Sporades, Southwest of Samos, mentioned once in the Bible, Revelation 1:9, "I, John.... was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus" (dia ton logon tou theou kai ten marturian Iesou). The island is 10 miles long, and about 6 broad along the northern coast. It is for the most part rocky. The highest part is Mount Elias, which rises to a height of over 800 ft. As in Greece, and in the adjacent mainland of Asia Minor, the land is treeless. Near the city of Patmos there is a good harbor. A famous monastery, Christodulos, was founded on the island in 1088. Near this is a thriving school, attended by students from all parts of the Archipelago. The population of the island numbers 3,000, almost entirely Greek. The ancient capital was on an isthmus between the inlets of La Scala and Merika. Many ruins can still be seen. The huge walls of Cyclopean masonry, similar to those at Tiryns, attest their great age. In Roman times Patmos was one of the many places to which Rome banished her exiles. In 95 A.D., according to a tradition preserved by Irenaeus, Eusebius, Jerome and others, John was exiled here-in the 14th year of the reign of Domitian-whence he returned to Ephesus under Nerva (96 A.D.). The cave in which he is said to have seen his visions is still pointed out to the traveler. Only a small part of the once valuable library in the monastery of Christodulos is left. Just 100 years ago (1814) Mr. E.D. Clark purchased here the manuscript of Plato which is now in the Bodleian Library, the celebrated Clarkianus, a parchment written in the year 895, and admittedly the best of all for the 1st of the 2 volumes into which the works of Plato were divided for convenience. Patmos is mentioned by Thucydides (iii.33), by Pliny (NH, iv.23), and by Strabo (x.5).
Jesus74 was crucified on Friday April 7, 30 AD (7/4/783 AUC). John47 the Apostle was present at the Cross74, along with Mary Magdalen/Mariamne74, Mary Mother of Jesus and other family members. Y'shua74 was then 34-years-old (b April 17, 6 BC [17/4/748 AC]) and would turn 35 ten days later. Magdalen was 30 (b May 8, 2 BC [8/5/752]) and would turn 31 in a month. How old was John, 17 maybe?
The Great Fire of Roma occured in 64 AD, 34 years after Jesus' crucifixion. St. Peter and St. Paul were both executed on Oct. 13, 64 AD. (Peter was crucified upside-down in Roma while PauI - a Roman citizen - was beheaded outside the city limts.) St. John was about 17 in 30 AD, he would have been about 51 in 64 AD. If John the Evangelist did write his received vision from Jesus in 95 AD, he would have been about 82 at that time. That's certainly possible, but reaching 82-years-old in those days and under those conditions would have been very unlikely. For this reason, many scholars believe that St. John of Patmos was not St. John the Apostle.
Of course, Nero was an antichrist, but not thee Antichrist: he was not thee "1st Beast". For only when the Second Coming of the Christ occurs does thee Antichrist (Ronald6 Wilson6 Reagan6 and the "2nd Beast": George Walker Bush Jr.) appear. Nero was not "wounded, yet lived". But early Christians believed that Nero would 'return' (reincarnate) at the time that the Christ would return. Possibly, John was promoting this transmigration of Nero, Jesus, and others? If so, then the 666 would be the gematria for "the ruler of the world whose actions were the opposite of the Christ, lied to all nations, and was wounded yet live" - Rev 13:1-18. But 666 gematria in what language? Is it possible that it could be English and Step 1 of Simple(6,74) English(7,74) Gematria(8,74) where one simply(6) counts(6) the letters in his name? Ya, it's very possible!
