That's right! The "beast" in Revelation 13:2 not only occurs within the similar context of the figurative language of John's prophetic vision, but it describes a composite "beast" made up of the same three figures used in Daniel's chapter seven dream, that we explored on the prior page! Talk about hitting the jackpot!

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
(Daniel also assigned the masculine gender to his kingdom beasts)

What kingdom today shares the same "seat", as the lion, bear and leopard successive kingdom "beasts", that Daniel prophesied of? Again, here are the sketch maps of the approximate territories of Daniel's kingdom "beasts", that were godless pagan empires that conquered, slaughtered, subjugated, oppressed and persecuted God's people:

Lion =

Bear =

Leopard =

Again, ".....and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat....."

The "dragon" is a figure for Satan. What empire today occupies the same seat as the succession of those pagan kingdoms that Daniel detailed?
