I did not realize there were "Angels" in Egyptian culture until I started to read about the deities in Egyptian Mythology and Pantheon. Something told me to look up Isis in one of my Angel reference books. And lo and behold, there she was.
To give some background information on Isis: She is the daughter of Geb and Nut-Sister and Wife of Osiris-and Mother of Horus. She is one of the most widely accepted divinities to be worshiped outside of Egypt as well as inside. Isis symbolizes Motherhood, Nurturance, Sovereignty, and Stability to her people. She is regarded as the pinnacle of power, her name included in many incantations. Especially any that dealt with healing. "In some traditions, she is considered a Seraph."
When she manifests herself in angel form it is usually with feathered wings that are spread to enfold her worshipers in unity [sleep of]. Also for consideration is that she presents herself this way when she is acting [revealing] in her role as the angel of death. "The line between angels and gods in polytheistic religions, especially those of ancient Egypt was a thin one and the representation of winged figures was common."
Some other deities that are associated with being of the "angelic" kind are:
Horus is the divine source of sovereignty and son of Isis and Osiris. In his manifestation of "Horus of Behtet" he reveals himself as a solar disc [halo] with feathered wings.
The Goddess Nut is the mother of Isis and Osiris and is an aerial goddess of sky and wind. She has been represented as a woman with outstretched wings or wings that are folded around her body.
Another example, in Chaldea Michael was considered the angel of the Last Judgment and the "weigher of souls" being in this role he was considered a descendent of Anubis. Anubis is a jackal-headed deity that presides over the judgment of the dead. He is also the protector and patron of mortuaries.
Khonsu is known as the Moon God. He is also known as the divinity invoked in exorcisms and in rites of healing. He is depicted as a two-headed falcon with a solar disc [halo] and a set of four feathered wings.
"The idea of unique angelic species probably derived ultimately from the influence of Egyptian, Sumerian, Babylonian, and Persian views of supernatural beings. This interaction of ideas produced the familiar image of the winged messenger of God."
