Lamb-horned beast of the earth

The coming up of another beast in Revelation symbolized the rise of another government.  The two-horned beast exercises its power in the presence of the first beast.  This contemporary power was outside of the territory of the ten-horned beast.  A separate beast required a separate territory.  However, it probably existed within the Roman Empire.  All the forms of Roman government symbolized by the dragon were also symbolized by the wild beast.  This kingdom symbolized by the two-horned beast must have been subservient to the Roman Empire.  Its dragon-like speech showed it to be a blasphemous, persecuting power, like that of the power that persecuted the woman.  Among the wonders it would perform was making fire come down from heaven.  What do you know about beasts?
