I think many people misunderstand polytheism.
If example, in The Abrahamic Religions and The Zoroastrian Religion, there is one God, the spirits that serve God called "servants" or
"messengers/angels" and the evil one and the spirits that follow the evil one.
In Egyptian polytheism, for example, there is one supreme God - The King of The Gods (called "Amun-Ra"), and all other gods are under the authority of
The King. In polytheism there is The King of The Gods and then the lesser gods under his authority. In the Abrahamic religions, there is one supreme
God and the lesser gods are "angels" who serve God The King of The Heavenly Kingdom or "fallen angels/unclean spirits" who follow the evil one.
The difference seems to be the choice of words, "gods" who serve their "King God" or not, in polytheism or, "angels/demons" who serve their "King God"
or not, in monotheism.
There are many similarities between the many different religions.
