It is precisely the ESTAQH/ESTAQHN question which is the issue. If the
first person is read then it becomes a comment about the narrator which
falls into the next scene (13:1). If it is the third person it becomes a
comment about hO DRAKWN which belongs to 12:18.  (vid. H.B. Swete,
Revelation p160)
