But Rella, ALL of the Roman caesars were part of the cult of emperor worship with the deification of themselves. From Julius Caesar and forward. Domitian claiming to be a god was just more of the same. It would take something beyond this to date Revelation. It is just as likely that it was Domitian duplicating the seven-star symbolism of the Revelation AFTER the book of Revelation was written earlier - not the other way around with John copying Domitian. That would be a strange thing for John to do anyway - to incorporate pagan symbolism in his apocalypse.
