Consider chapter 11, verse 2.
"But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months." NKJV

There is a widely accepted concept that the book of Revelation was written in about 95 AD. This verse makes that impossible.

First, the temple was still standing. We know the temple was destroyed in 70 AD.

Second, the holy city, Jerusalem, hadn't yet been trampled by the Gentiles. However we know it was during the war with Rome from 66-73 AD.

So, the writing of Revelation had to have been before the destruction of the temple, and before the holy city, Jerusalem, was trampled by the Gentiles. That at least dates the writing of Revelation before 70 AD.
