There is the Greek: ἄγγελος or angelos, which means messenger.

Quote:
"To a certain extent angels could correspond to the demons in Greek religion. The Greeks were familiar with messengers from the gods since the archaic period, as appears from the Iliad and Odyssey where birds bring divine messages to humans and Hermes acts as the angelos of the gods. For most of the appearances and functions of angels pagan parallels can be found, and in some cases the absorption of pagan conceptions is quite probable."
