A Recapitulation 

a vision not in chronological order.  In chapter 9 and 11 we have the beast coming out of the “bottomless pit” and in chapter 20 the beast is being cast into it.  Victorinus was the first to suggest this theory of recapitulation.  The bottomless pit is also consistent with the beast that was, is not, and yet is.  The two beasts are really the same.
