Pagan angels

LARRY HURTADO: “Angels”: Pagan, Jewish, Christian.
Over the past few days, I’ve been slowly digesting a recent large article surveying Greek inscriptions referring to “angels” in Roman Asia Minor: G. H. R. Horsley and Jean M. Luxford, “Pagan Angels in Roman Asia Minor: Revisiting the Epigraphic Evidence,” Anatolian Studies 66 (2016): 141-83. (The online link to the article is here.)

Yep, the pagans had angels too.
