I would let the figures number sequentially, and allude to the fact that
the second one is a duplicate. In the past, I have used three pieces to
identify and describe figures: figure numbers, figure captions, and
figure descriptions. The figure captions were brief and in bold type;
they served only to identify the figure, e.g., Spacely Sprocket
Schematic. The figure descriptions were longer, and not in bold. I used
the descriptions to explain the figures, and give any other pertinent
information. You could follow a scheme like that, and explain in the
description that you have duplicated the image for the reader's
